Groups in Malvern can grab 'Ticket to Ride' grants to start new community transport schemes

Rob George 26th Jun, 2022   0

FORWARD thinking groups and individuals interested in creating new community transport schemes in Wychavon and Malvern are being invited to grab a ‘Ticket to Ride’ and help turn their ideas into reality.

The £150,000 Ticket to Ride fund is designed to support community-led projects which improve access to services, connect communities, reduce social isolation, encourage more active forms of travel or just cut carbon emissions.

Projects can bid for up to 50 per cent of their costs – up to a maximum of £50,000 – from the fund, which is part of Crowdfund Worcestershire, a partnership between Worcestershire County Council and Malvern Hills and Wychavon District Councils.

The launch event for potential project creators and funders is taking place at Whittington Community Hall on Tuesday, June 28 from 10am to 11am




Visit www.crowdfundworcs.eventbrite.com to register.

Free online workshops are also taking place on July 6 and July 14. Any interested residents and groups are encouraged to register online.


July 6 at 6pm –  REGISTER

July 14 at midday –   REGISTER

The deadline to submit an idea for the next round of funding is September 28.

Coun Sarah Rouse, Leader of Malvern Hills District Council, said: “We are so pleased to be able to provide the next round of funding for community transport initiatives across the district.

“Now, more than ever, is it so important to connect communities and to help reduce isolation for all ages.”
