Want to install solar panels at Rosaline Hall to reduce carbon footprint

Fulham Good Neighbours Need Support To Go Green
The organisation is currently supporting 500 people in the community

Fulham Good Neighbours is currently seeking to crowd fund the installation of solar panels at its community centre Rosaline Hall.

The deadline for contributions is approaching and they need to raise nearly £22,000 to fund the project which will reduce its carbon footprint, promote sustainable energy use into the future and enable it to reinvest energy bill savings in community projects.

So far 51 people have donated a total of £5,800 just over a quarter of the amount needed.

The award winning charity has supported elderly people in the community since 1966 and currently is helping almost 500 older and disabled people a year with the aid of 100 local volunteers.

It has secured £5,025 grant funding from the Greater London Authority’s 'London Community Energy Fund' for the development stage of the project. Additional funding is now required for the capital costs.

They would like to install 12 solar panels which it is estimated will reduce energy requirements by nearly 4,000 kWh a year leading to a saving of over £11,000 within 25 years.

Community training would also be provided to maintain the longevity of the panels and associated mechanisms.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
