Charities benefit from South East Water fund

THANKFUL: Wealden MP Nusrat Ghani (front, fifth from left) with the charity representatives

Even though further water outages were experienced in the area this week, good causes in Crowborough and surrounds have benefited from a £50,000 community fund that was set up in the wake of water supply issues experienced by the community at the end of last year.

South East Water was joined by Wealden MP Nusrat Ghani to distribute the funds to charities, with each organisation receiving grants towards their projects.

Groups and organisations were selected by a judging panel after being invited to apply for a share of the fund.

Cheques were then awarded to the charities and their representatives at a ceremony in Crowborough.

South East Water’s Customer Service Director, Tanya Sephton said: “We know it was a very tough time for the whole community…

“We take our role as a responsible water company seriously and wanted to thank residents in Crowborough and the surrounding areas for their understanding.

“There’s no better way to support the tireless work of these great causes that are right at the heart of the community.

“A big thank you to them all,” she added.

Nusrat Ghani said: “I welcome this additional grant of £50,000 that is being distributed amongst our fantastic local charities.

“[They] provide vital services and support for Wealden communities and will benefit from this much-needed funding boost.”
