Crow Recycling celebrates after receiving £350 in National Lottery funding

Crow Recycling based in Coventry is celebrating after being awarded £350 in funding from The National Lottery Community Fund.
Crow Recycling has used the funding to pay for steel tipped non slip safety boots for people to use on work experience. Crow’s mission is to provide work placements for disabilities by recycling office waste paper and cans and running a Scrapstore selling reused items for arts and crafts. At the moment volunteers on placement are expected to provide their own safety boots but now Crow has a supply to lend.
This new National Lottery funding will support disabled volunteers, particularly those on short term placements from school or college who don’t own safety boots.
National Lottery players raise over £30 million a week for good causes across the UK. The National Lottery Community Fund distributes a share of this to projects to support people and communities to prosper and thrive.
Chairman of Crow Recycling trustees Bill Smith said: “Thanks to National Lottery players, this grant means that we can lend safety boots to our volunteers. That means they don’t have to buy them or ask around to borrow them and removes a barrier to volunteering with us.”
Crow Recycling is in Orchard House, Sparkbrook Street, Hillfields, Coventry, CV1 5LB.
