Cash boost for charities after votes come in

Four local charities have benefited from donations as part of the Lloyds Bank Community Fund public vote. More than 1.5 million people took part in the vote, and in Herne Bay £3,000 was awarded to the Special Needs Advisory and Activities Project (SNAAP). Another £2,000 was given to the Umbrella Centre in William Street, Tankerton Football Club were given £1,000 and East Kent and Swale Cruse Bereavement Care received £500. SNAAP work with disabled children and their families in Herne Bay, Whitstable and Canterbury. Manager Carrie Wood said:

“This fund will make a huge difference to SNAAP families through our Magical Winter Wonderland. Disabled children are often unable to attend Christmas events due to access or behavioural issues. We are overwhelmed by all the support and votes from the community and would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for us.”
