Grant from the Packet helps fund Mylor playing field improvements
4:00pm Thursday 2nd January 2014 in News
KING George V Playing Field in Mylor has been handed a £10,000 cheque from Packet editor Paul Armstrong after securing a grant from the newpaper’s parent company’s charitable trust.
The group has been given the money to install a youth shelter on Mylor Playing Fields, which have already been improved by the installation of play equipment for younger children and the development of two football pitches, attracting youths of secondary age and up.
Mr Armstrong presented the cheque to King George V Playing Field committee vice chair Mary Richardson, during an afternoon of activities at Tremayne Hall in Mylor Bridge, next to the playing fields.
The Gannett Foundation is the charitable arm of Gannett, owner of the Newsquest Media Group, which publishes regional newspapers, websites and magazines nationwide, including the Packet.
Each year it provides funding to support local projects and organisations in the areas where Newsquest operates in the UK valuing projects that bring lasting benefits to the communities and neighbourhoods served by its newspapers.
