We are delighted to announce the recipients for the second round of the Derwent London Community Fund. In May 2013, Derwent London launched a £250,000 community investment programme to support community projects in Fitzrovia. In the first year of the fund five local groups received £70,000 and a further £75,000 has just been allocated!
