The Skill Mill have teamed up with The Durham Woodland Revival and been awarded funding from TransPennine Express, after a public vote.
This partnership will now receive funding form the TransPennine Express Transform Community Grant scheme, which will allow for us to improve and manage woodland in Ferryhill Carrs. We are delighted to have received this funding, despite a massive 114 applications being submitted from projects around the country.
Ken Bradshaw, Durham County Council’s Durham Woodland Revival Development Manager said
“We’re delighted that our project has been awarded this funding. TransPennine Express staff and customers voted for the schemes that they felt were most deserving and we’re very proud that they chose our project.
As well as helping local young people to get back on track and managing some beautiful landscapes, the TPE funding is also likely to attract further funding, which is very exciting and would allow us to support even more young people and make further environmental improvements.”
