Local volunteers celebrate Asda Foundation grant
Earlier this year I was approached by a group of volunteers from Barrow Town Estate. They are the driving force behind rescuing and refurbishing an old Grade Two listed building that was once a small school. They have tirelessly fundraised and repaired the exterior and were now finalising their dream by completing the project. General store manager Kevin and myself went to present them with an Asda Foundation grant cheque for an amazing £9,941. This money is being used for a disabled access ramp, IT equipment, picnic benches and toys. This enables the building to be used as a great community hub. A huge thank you to the Asda Foundation.
