Cromer Town Council awards more than £6,000 to local charities
More than £6,000 has been donated to exceptional Cromer causes ahead of the town's annual meeting.
The Cromer Town Council raised £6050 for local causes at the New Year’s Day Firework Display.
Now 11 different organisations from across the town will receive donations to help them continue doing their remarkable work.
Mayor John Frosdick said: “For many charities it’s grants like this that keep them going.
“Whether it’s from us or another grant it’s what keeps them going. The grants are awarded on the basis that charities apply for them, and tell us how much they need and what for, and then we allocate as much as we can.”
Mr Frosdick continued: “I think the fact that we have so many charities in Cromer really shows what a great community spirit we have, that the community will get behind them and support them.”
The grants were awarded to the following charities:
• Friends of Cromer Hospital (in memory of Mary Northway): £100
• Seaview Playschool: £1000
• Friends of North Lodge Park: £250
