Groundworks UK/Tesco Grant Scheme - VOTE FOR DRTT!!!!
This Groundworks UK/Tesco scheme has selected three local projects to go forward to a public vote. We are delighted that our project, Fabulous Flowers of the Forest, is one of the finalists!
The winner will receive a grant of £5000 towards their project. 2nd and 3rd places receive £2000 and £1000 each respectively. Obviously we'd love to get the first prize... so do please vote for us!
Fabulous Flowers of the Forest will give over 100 children from each primary school in Corby an opportunity to explore Corby's urban woodlands and reflect on their meaning to family, friends and community. Children will work with artist Sophie Cullinan for a day creating their very own piece of art. These individual pieces will then be brought together to form a much larger artwork, forming a carpet nearly 3000 "fabulous flowers of the forest" twinkling in Thoroughsale Wood from the town down to the Boating Lake.
This installation will be in place from 5th to 7th May over the period we are putting on the grand finale of "Our "Woods": You can vote for Fabulous Flowers of the Forest at the following local Tesco stores throughout December:
