Manic Ceramics of 22 Port Vale, Hertford are the first organisation to be awarded a £1 200 Community Grant by Hertford Town Council under its expanded scheme available for those who need resources to combat Covid-19.
The Chairman of the Finance, Policy and Administration Committee, Cllr Bob Deering, said:
"Hertford Town Council are extremely pleased to be able to provide some funding to this worthwhile cause, supporting people though lockdown with craft activities and services. This is exactly the type of scheme that the expansion of the community grants scheme supports. It's clear that it is reaching hundreds of local children in different ways and is being very much valued by the local community.”
Shop owner, Debs Bonfield added “Manic Ceramics has been offering free craft ideas and kits for most of the last 2 months, with hundreds of local families collecting these on their daily exercise route and getting creative at home! Huge thanks to Hertford Town Council from Manics for the grant that can now be used to keep doing the free kits. If you are aware of ANYONE who could benefit from a craft pack please email firstname.lastname@example.org.”
