Each year North Yorkshire County Councillors are able to nominate local causes to be supported from a Locality Budget.
Cllr Geoff Webber (Bilton & Nidd Gorge) has chosen to support the Harrogate Homeless Project with £5,000 and Harrogate & Craven Citizen’s Advice Emergency Assistance Fund with £2,500.
Cllr Geoff Webber commented:
Although the government and local authorities have made huge efforts to alleviate distress during the pandemic, there will always be some people not covered by relief schemes.
I hope that the grants from my allowance will go some way to helping those people in desperate circumstances.
