Hillingdon Community Trust funded £15,000 towards the spectator gallery at the club.

A local charity which helps people with disability and long-term illness to carry on enjoying their gardens. Hillingdon Community Trust stepped in to provide a grant of £19,500 to enable Healing Gardens to continue working in Hayes, West Drayton, Yiewsley and the south of Hillingdon borough.

Since it was established, Hillingdon Community Trust has made grants of around £¾ of a million for the benefit of local school children, including a special initiative offering small grants of up to £5,000 to primary schools for a project that will enhance the lives of their pupils, funding to subsidise visits by the Life Education Centre Hillingdon to local schools to provide specialist lessons in healthy living and drug education, and funding towards Rosedale College's artificial turf playing surfaces, full size grass pitch, floodlighting and purpose built changing facilities. A Trust grant of £22,000 enabled Harmondsworth Primary School to build a special atrium so that children would have the opportunity of learning how to grow plants and about growing food and eating healthily.

The Trust made a grant of £4,000 for a drop in session for elderly people in Yiewsley to provide IT training and physical exercise programmes to improve independence. As a result of the grant, the more isolated members of the community make new friendships and gain information that they might not otherwise be able to access.

A £5,000 grant from Hillingdon Community Trust to the QPR Kickz project provided portable floodlights for the winter. The project engages with 100 young people from the Trust's area and aims to involve young people in positive, constructive activities, create exit routes into education, training and employment, break down barriers between police and young people, reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, increase playing, coaching and officiating opportunities, encourage volunteering and increase young people's interest in the game.

Moorcroft School was able to acquire a specially adapted mini bus thanks to a grant of £38,000 from Hillingdon Community Trust. This mini bus has enabled class groups to access the community more regularly and reinforce frequent learning.

£46,300 over 3 years enabled Disablement Association Hillingdon (DASH) to set up an independent living group for disabled people, providing assistance with social networking and leisure activities. The Club arranges a wide range of activities, including Arts and Crafts, Keep Fit, Yoga, Football, Multi Sports and Swimming chosen by its members.

A grant of £16,020 for canoes and kayaks has made a real difference to the kayaking and canoeing opportunities on offer to this group. The boats have been used extensively not only by scouts from Hayes and Harlington but also Hillingdon Borough Police cadets, Heathrow District Guides and West Drayton Air Cadets. Children from the Trust area from all sections of the community have been able to use the equipment and have been introduced to a fun sport which demands confidence, concentration and the development of personal skill.

The Trust's grant of £100,000 helped to transform a building unused for years into a thriving community centre. Managed day-to-day by Age Concern Hillingdon, a range of services for local people will operate from the new building including an Internet café, training rooms, and a well being suite offering a wide variety of activities for the local community.
