Penny Hill Wind Farm Community Fund
The Banks Group created the Penny Hill Wind Farm Community Fund to support community groups, voluntary organisations and environmental projects with grant funding to support local good causes.
Projects from the parishes of Aston, Thurcroft, Treeton, Ulley and Whiston are eligible for funding. However, we may consider projects from outside of these areas if they can show they benefit local people from these parishes.
We fund the Penny Hill Wind Farm Community Fund with £20,905.12 annually, and it’s represented by members from each of the local eligible parish councils.
