County Councillor Chris White (St Albans) has allocated £200 to the Hatfield Road Day care Group from his locality budget fund.
The Hatfield Road Daycare Group is a charity which runs a day centre for older people (72-103 years old) and disabled housebound people, almost all from the Fleetville area of St Albans.
The funding will contribute towards the cost of the group’s 25th Anniversary celebration event.
A total of £10,000 is available to each of the 77 members of Hertfordshire County Council to spend on worthwhile community projects in their area.
Locality budgets were launched in July 2009, with funding to be used for worthy social, economic or environmental causes in Hertfordshire. For information on how to apply for funding under the scheme visit www.hertsdirect.org/localitybudgets
