Charity Harington Scheme up for £50,000 lottery grant wants your votes
A horticultural charity for young adults with learning difficulties has asked the community for support to help it win a £50,000 lottery grant.
The Harington Scheme, in Cholmeley Park, Highgate, teamed up with the Friends of Childs Hill Park to enter the People’s Millions competition, run by the Big Lottery Fund and ITV.
The groups, which are competing under the name Childs Hill Park for All, hope to use the grant to create a community marsh garden in Childs Hill Park for children to use as an open-air classroom and for Harington Scheme students to learn how to build and maintain a garden.
Both groups are urging the community to vote for the project on Wednesday, November 26.
Scheme manager Joanna Baxter said: “It would be a fantastic start to a fantastic partnership with the park. We hope this project will enable our students to be able to gain volunteer opportunities for the park to increase their employment prospects.”
