The council also approved a £100 grant to Down to Earth Co-operative towards personal and protective equipment and clothing, tools and resources for volunteers. Grants of £500 were awarded to Uplands Care Service towards a washer/dryer and a freezer and PhotoStroud to publicise and promote a Stroud based programme of events.
Councillor Amanda Moriarty who chairs the committee said the latest awards indicated the Town Council’s efforts to support the many voluntary and community-based projects which form a vital part of town life.
“It never ceases to amaze me how many residents give up their time to get involved in helping other people on a community level,‘ she said. ‘I am always keen to talk to local groups interested in applying for a grant."
