Charities which support vulnerable people have been boosted by donations from a housing association’s community fund.
Freebridge Community Housing has given nearly £5,000 to community groups who are making a difference within West Norfolk.
Pandora Project, which helps women affected by domestic violence, was given £1,000 which will fund updates to its website to make it more secure and interactive.
Another £1,000 was given to Forward Day Centre, which supports vulnerable adults, especially those with learning difficulties. The money will be used to buy a tactile panel for their sensory room, along with further equipment for the day centre.
Three Holes Village Hall and Playing Field received £948 to pay for a cabinet to store a defibrillator while Purfleet Trust received £500 for training courses.
Sing Your Heart Out West has been given £1,000 to hire a vocal coach and to cover the rental of their premises.
Chief executive Tony Hall said: “Welcoming representatives from the local groups who’ve been successful with their applications is great, to hear the plans that they have for the money, and understand what a difference it will make to people’s lives throughout west Norfolk is fantastic.”
