Organised by Limerick City and County Council in association with the JP McManus Charitable Foundation, the Limerick Going for Gold Environment Improvement Grant & Competition encourages communities to help make Limerick a cleaner, brighter place to work, live and visit.
The Going for Gold campaign has, this year, been expanded to incorporate all of Limerick city and county, as well as the Limerick In Bloom competition and a new improvement grant scheme.
Featuring a prize fund of €74,000, which is fully funded by the McManus Charitable Foundation, this year's competition features four separate categories, namely Going for Gold Challenge (top prize of €10,000), Limerick In Bloom and a Tidy Towns Incentive category. Separately, there is a Best Front Garden Competition, sponsored by The Parkway Shopping Centre.
Going For Gold also encompasses a new grant scheme which is 50% match funded by the McManus Charitable Foundation, applicants to which will be automatically entered into the Going For Gold Competition.
The closing date for receipt of applications is Tuesday 9th June 2015.
