Good causes cash in

Local good causes have cashed in to the tune of £84,000 at the annual Mansfield District Council grant-in-aid awards.

Mansfield District Council has backed 26 individuals and groups from across the area with financial support for equipment, events, travel expenses and running costs. The grants range from £200 to £55,300.

Grant-in-aid award recipients 2008

This year awards were split into three sections: sport and leisure; promotion of the arts and community and voluntary.

Amongst the recipients of grants for 2008/09 were:

Mansfield District Council's Deputy Mayor and Portfolio Holder for Resources, Coun Roger Sutcliffe presented the awards.

Coun Sutcliffe said: "The grant-in-aid awards are a great investment. Many of the organisations we help provide important services to thousands of local people and the individuals help to raise Mansfield's profile and act as great ambassadors for our district."

"Deciding on the many grant-in-aid applications we receive is one of the hardest jobs we have to do; I wish we had got a bottomless pit of money to support even more good causes with even larger grants.

"Even the smallest grants can make a huge difference. It was great to hear what the recipients were spending the money on and how it has helped them to support various performances, outings and facilities.
