Southville Community Development Association
Please vote for us! We are thrilled to have been shortlisted by M&S for an award of £12,000 from their Energy Fund, and we are in with a good chance of winning – we are currently in third place! We really need your vote to help us secure this much needed boost of funds to add the 36 photovoltaic solar panels to the southwest facing roof of the Chessel Centre. As you will know from our regular newsletters we have designed the building in the most efficient way possible and we really want to keep the building’s carbon output low going forward. So please give one minute of your time to vote for us by clicking the button below. (The link will also show you some info about our crowdfunding campaign to raise a bit more money for the other things we need to put the solar panels up –like scaffolding etc. So just a vote for the M&S money would be wonderful but a pledge as well would be even better. Thank you.)
