Coronavirus support groups who have been providing a “fantastic service” for their communities could now be eligible for a funding boost.
Thetford Town Council have now made small grants of up to £300 available for organisations or groups working hard to make sure no one is struggling as lockdown continues.
The idea was first suggest by town councillor Terry Jermy who said he was “happy” the council are doing their bit to help those who have offered their services during these difficult times.
Councillor Jermy said: “We are very lucky in Thetford because we have four or five groups who are providing a really fantastic service and its only right the town council supports them.
“No one has been left struggling because we have had so much support and volunteers who came forward. It’s been a great effort.”
