In order to support the work of well-established orgaganisations in our area, EBPC has made immediate donations of £1500 to each of the Food Banks run by the Matthew Project and Wansbeck Valley. This is under constant review. The Council also continues to support the work of our 3 Primary Schools, through an increase in annual donations to £2000 per school (as well as £1000 to Bedlington Academy’s Breakfast Club) and by food deliveries. It is hoped that the residents of East Bedlington will support this use of Parish Council funds.
