Cash boost for Copeland
Last updated at 10:52, Monday, 31 March 2014
COMMUNITY projects and good causes across a borough are set to receive a cash boost of more than £20,000.
Cumbria County Council’s Copeland Committee granted a total of £20,240 to various projects supported by councillors.
The money comes from five different councillors’ Local Member Scheme allocations - a funding stream that gives each local member sum of money to support projects in their division.
Cllr Frank Morgan, chair of Copeland Local Committee, said: "This funding will make a huge difference to all these very worthwhile good causes.
“It's vital we continue to invest and continually improve our communities, as well as to teach new skills or help people discover new interests."
One group seeing a share of the money are those at the Millom Rugby Union Club, who are to receive £390 to buy housing for a defibrillator.
