Rotherham wind farm generates cash for local causes

WIND farm operator REG Windpower has handed out grants to local causes near its Rotherham development.

The firm pledged to donate £$180,000 to community causes over the lifetime of the three 95-metre turbines  it operates at Loscar Farm, Harthill.

Harthill Preschool Group has been given £1,000 towards a “story station”  which will enable children to listen to books while reading.

And the Harthill Well Dressing Group has been given a grant towards this summer’s event.

Harthill Carnival Society and the Kiveton Park and Wales Village Hall also received support from the Loscar fund.

REG community relations manager Claudia Richard said: “It’s fabulous to see such a wide variety of fantastic local causes being supported.”

Fund manager Sue Wragg, from South Yorkshire Community Foundation, said: “The Loscar funds are making a big difference and will continue to do so.”

To apply for a share of the grant to help a project in the parishes of Harthill with Woodall, Thorpe Salvin and Wales, see
