Sidmouth Consolidated Charities sets bench-mark
RESIDENTS in Lymebourne Park have been handed a bench boost by Sidmouth Consolidated Charities.
The cause splashed around �100 on a new seat so tenants at council-owned homes, many of whom are elderly, can enjoy the outdoors.
Sidmouth Consolidated Charities leaders have invited more applications for cash help.
Administrator Ruth Rose said: “We provide grants for hardship cases of all sorts in the Sidmouth area, and try to pick up the pieces where social services don’t pay out, but there’s a good reason why somebody needs something.”
The charity recently paid out for a tumble dryer for the mother of a disabled child and also provide grants for educational purposes to help with travel expenses, books and computers.
