BOSSES behind the bid for the Salwarpe Pavilion development are celebrating after scooping £466 in the green token scheme being ran by Waitrose in Droitwich.
The King George V Sports Association Community Interest Company (CIC) is campaigning so the derelict pavilion at the playing fields can be refurbished.
The scheme in total will cost £200,000 with work including improvements to the toilets, extending the first floor and creating a function room for between 80 and 100 people.
The popular playing field is used by almost 50 teams each week and, with that becoming more in the future, a place is needed for people to meet and socialise.
Independent chairman Richard Whittall said: “We want to say a big thank you to Waitrose for the funding and to everyone who voted for us.
“This contribution will go towards the scheme which will be very beneficial to the community.”
Ann Walsh, Droitwich Waitrose’s community support co-ordinator, said: “I used to use the pavilion when I was younger and it’s great the store has been able to help the scheme.
“I want my own children, the next generation of sports people and the wider community to be able to use it too.”
