PRESS RELEASE: Second Grant Awarded

Sevenoaks Town Council will wherever continue to support our local community, particularly in these difficult times. For this reason, the Town Council created a £30,000 Community Resilience Fund for those who are putting in place voluntary arrangements to help those in need.
The Town Council will be making speedy decisions to ensure that these grants are provided when needed.
The Town Council agreed a £780 Community Resilience Fund grant to PSB Breastfeeding CIC.
The grant will be used by PSB Breastfeeding to continue to support parents who are struggling with breastfeeding.
