GRANTS and donations amounting to more than £50,000 have been confirmed from a special fund created by Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe to aid the county’s recovery from Covid-19.

In all 26 bids for funding have been accepted.

It brings the total amount of extra funding released this year by the Commissioner through local grants, donations and Covid-19 related government funding to almost £250,000.

Mr Seccombe launched the Covid-19 Recovery Fund in June to ensure that public sector organisations, voluntary groups, charities, social enterprises and community organisations working in the county could continue their support of community safety.

Grants of up to £5,000 were available per organisation, while donations of up to £1,000 were also available for smaller community groups and projects that might not ordinarily have qualified for a full grant.
