Eastbourne and Willingdon MP Caroline Ansell has welcomed 23 local charities receiving £675,000 from the government’s Coronavirus Community Support Fund.
Groups like Defiant Sports, Citizens Advice, Eastbourne Foodbank and Care for the Carers have received cash to help their work during the pandemic.
“Yet again the government has given Eastbourne generous support with substantial grants to these amazing organisations that do so much to help local people,” said Caroline.
“I couldn’t be more pleased that ministers have understood this money is vital to help these worthy charities and groups continue their good work and I am glad to have played my part in securing support for them.
“This sort of investment will help Eastbourne and Willingdon to emerge from this crisis able to continue with that help as we start to recover.”
