ENERGY SPECIAL: Vote for Lewes ‘Warm Home Box’ project to get funding!
Deadline for voting: 11pm, Wednesday 2 February
Ouse Valley CARES, the National Lottery-funded climate action project, is inviting public votes on which of five local community climate-related ideas should receive funding, including Lewes Climate Hub’s ‘Warm Home Box’ project.
The Ouse Valley CARES (Climate Action, Resilient Ecosystems and Sustainability) Project is a National Lottery-funded project.
As part of its aim to help local communities in the Ouse Valley build resilience to the impacts of climate change, it has invited organisations and community groups to pitch their ideas for climate-related projects – with the public deciding which should get funding.
Five ideas have been shortlisted. These include Lewes Climate Hub’s idea for a ‘Warm Home Box’ – a transportable box of materials, information and ideas for home insulation and draught-proofing. The idea is that this can be taken around local events and venues to give anyone simple, practical and affordable ideas on how to keep their property warm, including renters unable to make big changes to their homes.
So it would be great if Transition Town Lewes supporters could cast their vote! Those ideas receiving 50 votes or more will be funded by the South Downs National Park Trust, and the two with the most votes will win an additional prize of £300 each to put towards their projects.

Votes must be cast by 11pm, Wednesday 2 February.
