Funding Bid – Landfill tax Credits

Buckman Associates Ltd supported the Ilsington Playing Fields and Recreation Association in a pro-bono capacity to apply for Landfill Tax Credits to re-surface the Ilsington Tennis/netball courts. The project involved working with other volunteers to agree the scope of the project, seek quotes for the work, secure community support and draft the funding bid. Buckman Associates Ltd pulled together a financial plan for the project, identified sources of match funding and co-ordinated a crowdfunding campaign to secure the final contributions needed to be able to start the project. The project secured a £20,000 grant from Viridor Landfill Tax Credits and the work was completed in 2016. The project has rejuvenated the courts which are now able to host a thriving tennis and netball club as well as being used by the local primary school.
