The cost-free way of showing support is to register to vote on the Aviva Community Fund, which can raise up to Â£5,000 for the project. All supporters need to is register on the site and then distribute 10 votes as they see fit – but voting closes on Friday 29 May.
(At this point, the ever impartial Wansteadium must point out that the rebuilding of the Scout HQ on the corner of Hollybush Hill which we were talking about last week is ALSO seeking funding from the Aviva fund, and would also be grateful for the backing of Wanstead supporters. Happily the 10 available votes can be shared.)
The playground fund has now raised more than Â£21k, and further events are in the pipeline, including a day of tidying and painting which is being held on 10 June. Once the fund hits Â£25k, it is hoped it will be able to attract some grants from larger funds.
