Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has welcomed the news that three local charities have received funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund.
Gwynne encouraged local charities to apply for the funding, which was intended to support organisations to continue to deliver services to people and communities affected by COVID-19, back in May.
It was announced earlier this month that three charities from the Denton and Reddish constituency have received a combined £23,538 from the fund. These charities are Tameside Arts Limited (Denton), Keira’s Kingdom (Reddish) and Carmel Christian Centre (Denton).
Andrew Gwynne said:
“Charities have played a vital role during the Coronavirus crisis, but unfortunately many have found themselves in financial difficulties as a result of the pandemic.
“This fund is a really good starting point for helping charities to recover, but I would urge the Government to look at what more can be done as the sector is in real difficulty.
“Congratulations to the three charities in Denton and Reddish who were successful in their applications for funding – it is very well deserved!”
