Suffolk community projects get a cash boost thanks to EDF

Dozens of Suffolk based projects are celebrating thanks to donations from Sizewell B and the Sizewell C project.

Both Sizewell B and Sizewell C offer funding for community projects within a 10mile radius of the station and development site.  Up to £20,000 is made available each year to projects that meet the criteria.

So far this year funding has been provided for projects ranging from a new boules pitch in Middleton village to a new clubhouse for the Aldeburgh & Thorpeness Rugby Club.

Over the summer, Aldeburgh Carnival will once again benefit from a donation towards their floats and also the hands-on support from the Sizewell B apprentices as carnival marshals to help with the smooth and safe running of the event.

Niki Rousseau, Sizewell B Community Relations said: “It is good to see that so many worthwhile projects get off the ground with the help of EDF Energy funding and hands on support from our employees. We wish these projects the best of luck.”
