Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation has awarded £14,280 to Letchworth Foodbank following an application to its COVID-19 Catalyst Grant Programme, which was set up to support local groups and charities impacted by the pandemic.
COVID-19 forced the Heritage Foundation to close many of its arts and heritage venues and services which was devastating. This funding will be used to reopen the Garden City Collection and Museum at One Garden City, plus other activities and plans.
We support, fund and deliver activities to meet our charitable commitments for the benefit of our local communities. We promote aspects of life in Letchworth including environment, heritage, education, leisure, charities and charitable activities for the local community.
