Ferryhill Town Council is pleased to announce that three local community groups have become the latest beneficiaries of the Council’s newly launched Members Initiative Fund.
Endeavour Woodcrafts CIC received a donation of £225 from Councillor Carole Atkinson for an Arts & Crafts project, while the Ferryhill Banner Group received £450 from Councillor Liam Fellows to help cover costs associated with hosting the Ferryhill Miners Banner Parades, and Local drama group, Chance Drama received a total of £600 comprising £450 from Councillor Christine Woods and £150 from Councillor Joe Quinn, to help with the costs of hosting a production of ‘Goldilocks.’
All four Councillors were delighted to be able to support projects being delivered by Ferryhill based community groups. Mayor, Councillor Carole Atkinson said ‘The new Members Initiative Fund is proving to be a huge success. Since its launch in April, the initiative has already donated funds to seven local community groups. It is fantastic to be able to provide financial support in this way, helping groups deliver local projects that benefit the Town.’
Funding is still available through the Town Council’s Members Initiative Fund. For more information, please contact Karen Younghusband at Ferryhill Town Hall on telephone: 01740 652157 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
