Provident’s Good Neighbour Programme recognises the projects or organisations which make a real difference to their local communities. It invested more than £1 million into communities across the UK during 2015. The Wooden Canal Boat Society believe their work makes a real difference in the local community by providing opportunities for better mental health of volunteers and also those who go for trips on Hazel, their Well-Being boat. ‘’We would love to do even better work in the area with the help of this funding, which will help us purchase a much needed ‘new-to-us’ van for collection of donations for our shop, delivery of goods bought there and general fetching and carrying of all the items our old boats need’’
Andy Parkinson, Provident Home Credit Director, commented: “Our Good Neighbour Programme is all about recognising projects and organisations, no matter how small, which bring about positive changes in their communities. W.C.B.S. is a perfect example of precisely that, and we have been thrilled to see so many nominations from local residents. “Provident agents have always worked closely within the communities in which we operate, and we see first-hand the importance of community spirit. We’re encouraging the people of Tameside to vote for their local organisations to receive funding to continue their great work.”
