Eleven charities across Hertford and Stortford are set to benefit from receiving extra funding via the Coronavirus Community Support Fund.
Financial support for voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations across the country are set to receive additional funding through the £200 million Coronavirus Community Support Fund. This fund has been designed to help such organisations to continue their vital work in local communities.
In Hertford and Stortford, groups such as Carers In Hertfordshire, Age Concern Bishop's Stortford and The Mudlarks Community are set to receive funding from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
Responding to the news, Julie Marson, MP for Hertford and Stortford has said:
“This year more than ever, we have relied on the great work that our local charities do. I am delighted that eleven of these in our community are set to receive additional funding so that they can continue this great work.
“From the Coronavirus Community Support Fund alone, eleven charities in our community have so far received over £170,000. This shows the Government’s commitment to lending a helping hand to those organisations which do so much for local residents.
“I will continue to work to make sure that all organisations have what they need to carry out such vital work in this challenging time.”
Julie has said that she will be writing to all charities that are set to benefit to congratulate them and to offer her support wherever she can.
