Community groups in Haverhill are celebrating after receiving more than £21,000 in the final round of a grant scheme.
A total of seven organisations and projects across the town have benefited from the community grants allocated by ONE Haverhill Partnership.
Over the past few years, ONE Haverhill Partnership has handed out than £60,000 to provide crucial support to a number of worthwhile groups while also helping new projects to start up.
And this has continued with the 1st Haverhill Scout Group, the town’s Befriending Scheme, Haverwell Community Wellbeing Fund and St Mary’s Church among the recipients.
The other beneficiaries are Haverhill Cricket Club, REACH Community Projects and Community Action Suffolk.
David Ruddy, chair of the ONE Haverhill Partnership grants panel, said: “We were delighted with the response to our last round of community grants.
“The work of the recipients all matched up the priorities of ONE Haverhill Partnership including education and further improving health and wellbeing in the town.”
John Mayhew, chair of ONE Haverhill Partnership, said: “The community grants success has been a great success in highlighting and providing crucial support to worthwhile organisations and projects across Haverhill.
“We are indebted to St Edmundsbury Borough Council for providing us with the funds and Haverhill Town Council for helping us administer the grants.”
