E.ON funds green makeover

Energy giant E.ON has donated over £16,000 to a church charity in Stoke-on-Trent to help the community group fund a green makeover.

The Swan Bank Mission will use the grant to invest in more efficient usage of heat in its sports hall and for the installation of double glazing in three of its main community rooms.

Ashley Cooper from the mission said: "By reducing our carbon footprint, we'll be able to give greater levels of comfort to the vulnerable people that we help, as well as reducing our impact on the environment.

"We'll be able to have even more of an impact within our community now as we'll be able to develop new activities, particularly around youth and sports in the hall area."

The cash injection comes from the E.ON Sustainable Energy Fund, set up to help community groups and non-for-profit organisations develop sustainable energy strategies.

E.ON also announced today, July 30th, it has awarded £11,000 to Northop Hall Methodist Church as part of the scheme.
