Town Mayor, Councillor Anita Barham, was very proud to be able to award funds to not one but two extremely worthwhile local causes.
Firstly the Town Mayor has donated £600 from her charity fund this year to support Julie Wakefield and her family following the fire in their home earlier this year. The Town Mayor hopes this amount goes some way in helping the family through this challenging time.
Secondly, Councillor Barham presented a cheque for £700 to The Grove Irish Dancers. This award was made up of a £400 grant award from the Town Council and again £300 from the Town Mayors charity fund. This donation will help to fund members of the dance troop to attend the World Championships in Ireland next year. We wish the team all the very best.
