    The finalists for Salford’s annual Springboard Heroes Awards have been announced.

    For the past year, housing association Salix Homes has been awarding grants to groups and projects across Salford that are making a difference in communities.

    The landlord has donated more than £33,000 to dozens of local groups and initiatives across Salford as part of its Springboard community grant programme.

    From gardening groups to grassroots football teams; Springboard has provided much-needed cash injections to local projects that boost community spirit, promote health and wellbeing, reduce isolation and improve the environment.

    Now, Salix Homes has picked four fantastic projects from across its neighbourhoods as the Springboard Heroes finalists and it’s over to the public to vote for their favourite, with the winning project receiving a £1,000 cash boost.

    The finalists for the Springboard Heroes Awards are:

    Buile Hill Mansion Association – This determined group is on a mission to restore the historic Buile Hill Park Mansion and surrounding buildings and bring it back into public use. They’re hoping to use the Springboard Heroes prize money to continue with their restoration project of the site’s sensory garden.

    Bridgewater Residents Association - This green-fingered group have bounced back from adversity after thieves raided their community garden on East Philip Street in Trinity, which has proved a lifeline for those struggling during the pandemic. If they win, they plan to create more opportunities for people to get involved in gardening.

    Salford Pride: Pink Picnic Digital – Determined not to be thwarted by the pandemic, Salford Pride hosted the first Pink Picnic Digital – an eight-hour online celebration which was enjoyed by more than 4,000 people. They’ll use the prize money to continue their fight for equality for all in Salford.

    “We’re incredibly proud of our Springboard grant programme, which has provided a lifeline, particularly during the challenges of the pandemic, for many fantastic groups and projects, which are really making a difference in our communities.

    “The Springboard Heroes is our way of honouring some of the fantastic work that people in Salford are doing day in, day out; and it’s projects like these that make our communities so special.

    “We’d urge you to cast your vote for your favourite and help them win the £1,000 prize, which we hope will enable them to continue the wonderful work they do.”

     

     

    Voting opened on Monday, 9 August and closes on Monday, 6 September, after which the winners will be announced.
