Having launched its Members Initiative Fund in April 2022, Ferryhill Town Council is pleased to announce that donations have now been made to eight local community groups through the scheme. The latest group to receive funding is the Friends of Cleves Cross School, who were presented with a cheque for £450 by Councillor Curtis Bihari.
The Friends group, who were established to support Cleves Cross Primary School, providing activities, equipment and helping to advance the education of pupils attending the School, will use the monies donated through the Members Initiative Fund to purchase a defibrillator cabinet. The installation of the cabinet outside Cleves Cross Primary will enable the School’s existing defibrillator to be installed in an easily accessible location, so that it can benefit the whole community.
Councillor Bihari said ‘I am delighted to be able to support such a worthwhile project, which will ensure that a life-saving defibrillator can be made fully accessible by the whole community. Supporting Cleves Cross Primary School on this initiative has been a pleasure.’
Funds are still available through the Members Initiative Fund, for more information please contact Karen Younghusband at Ferryhill Town Hall on telephone: 01740 652157 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
