NOMINATIONS for life-changing funding here in Stratford-upon-Avon must be submitted within the next week.

ReBuild is a major new initiative from Stratford Town Trust.

A local version of the BBC’s DIY SOS – life-changing funding is up for grabs, to transform a family home or community facility within Stratford town.

But nominations must be submitted by midnight on Tuesday, October 24th.

Anyone can nominate via a simple online form at

Alternatively, you can call Stratford Town Trust on 01789 207111 for a paper copy.

The ReBuild must happen with the boundary of Stratford-upon-Avon town.

Justin Williams, Chief Executive for Stratford Town Trust, says: “This brand-new initiative is seeking to have a direct and lasting impact on a family or community here in Stratford-upon-Avon.

“It could be a house needing major alterations to allow an ill or disabled family member stay at home, or a community facility needing significant funding for a transformation.

“It’s up to the community to come forward with worthy projects – and this is your last chance to be in with a chance of winning really significant, life-changing funding.”

The winner of ReBuild will be announced before Christmas – with the ReBuild then happening in 2018.

Much like DIY SOS – the hit BBC1 programme – Stratford Town Trust also needs to hear from any companies and volunteers willing to lend a hand – or a team of hands – to support the project once the winner is announced.

Details can again be left online, via the survey at:

“We’ve had a really good response so far – but we know there are more worthy projects out there yet to come forward. Don’t miss this opportunity, if you know someone who could benefit, please come forward this week.

“For ReBuild to work, we really need the whole community to get behind it, and if that happens, then it could become an annual event.

“We don’t have any preconceived ideas on what the ReBuild could be – that’s all up to you.”

Stratford Town Trust is a grant-giving charity with origins going back to the 13th Century. Today, the Trust funds nearly £2 million worth of grants to support local good causes – including charities, groups, individuals and every town school.
