Well voted, Wanstead, well voted

batmanWanstead’s two current fundraising projects have won £5,000 each thanks to online voting from supporters. The playground renovation effort being run by the Wanstead Playground Association AND the building of the new Scout hall in Snaresbrook are to be given the funds from the Aviva Community Fund. (Details of the playground bid are here, and the Scout hut here.)

This means the playground fund has now raised more than £37,000, after a gala dinner at Wanstead Golf Club also saw £5,000 collected. There is a fundraising Wanstead Comedy Night being held on 17 July, and a second volunteering day for people to help paint the fences and tidy the site. That’s next Thursday 9 July, from 9.30am. (Refreshments being donated by Starbucks and Nice Croissant.)
