TV host Jenny Jones increases funding to her "Hometown Hero" project
TV talk show host Jenny Jones is committing more money to the upgrade of a playground in London.
In 2015, Jones held a contest inviting London residents to submit proposals for local projects the former Forest City resident would provide funding.
Jones selected an improvement to the playground at Springbank Park.
The original donation was for $100,000.
Jones has now increased that to $200,000.
The city of London will contribute $60,000
Work is scheduled to be completed this spring.
The grand opening for the improved playground is June 18th.
Jones will be on hand for the ceremony.
