Five charities have been handed generous amounts of cash from the funds of a community action group that is soon to disband.
Gill Mason has been the chairperson of Cheadle-based Hammersley Hayes Residents Action Group, which is now winding down, since 2004.
The organisation still has money in its treasury and Gill is now distributing the funds to good causes.
£2,000 has been donated to Anna Lavan’s Paddles Swim Club, which helps less-abled youngsters who have conditions such as autism take to the water. The money has been given so the service can buy specialised equipment to help members.
The Cheadle & District Animal Welfare Society and Mark Dalkins, who provides assistance for children with special needs, were both given £500.
A further £1,000 has been donated to The Sunshine Luncheon Club, in addition to £1,185 from the
‘Hammersley Hayes Luncheon Club’ pot.
The Churches Community Night Shelter for Homeless People in Hanley has also been handed £1,000.
Gill told the Times & Echo: “The Hammersley Hayes Residents Action Group is now winding down and so money is being distributed to good causes.”
