ASTWOOD Bank Carnival Committee is giving a helping hand to a number of organisations across Redditch to the tune of £4,400.
Representatives from Redditch First Responders, Night Stop, Redditch Food Bank, Astwood Bank First School, St. Matthias Church, Ridgeway Academy School, YMCA and 1st Matchborough Scouts were amongst those that recently attended the Committee’s AGM at Ridgeway Academy.
During the event, which took place last Tuesday (November 3), cheques were presented to the organisations for a whole host of activities and good causes that will support the local and wider community.
In addition, the Committee has reinvested in the carnival and has ordered over a kilometre of new bunting that will be displayed in Astwood Bank streets next summer.
The 2016 Carnival has been scheduled for Saturday July 9 with the theme ‘Time Travellers’.
