Grant funding brings Santa to South Hetton families

Grant brings Santa to South Hetton

19 December 2017 - Latest news

Funding from one of the north east’s largest landlords has helped to bring Christmas fun to South Hetton.

believe housing has provided funding for the Robin Todd Centre to build a grotto, decorate the entire facility and stage a series of Christmas events.

Youngsters from South Hetton and the surrounding area will also be treated to a disco, brass band performance and the chance to pick up a small gift from Santa Claus in his specially created grotto.

Funding for the festivities came from believe housing’s ‘believe housing community grant’ scheme. The programme provides small grants to projects right across the county.

believe housing Funding Officer, Damian Pearson, said: “The Robin Todd Centre is a great facility and we were really pleased to be able to support them in bringing some extra festive cheer to the local community.”

Robin Todd Centre Chairman, James Shand, said: “We would like to thank believe housing for their generosity in funding the Robin Todd Centre. Enable us to decorate the building for the festive period and help spread the Christmas cheer for all the village.”

The application process for ‘believe housing community grant’ has been kept deliberately simple and funding decisions will be made monthly to ensure local groups are not waiting for lengthy periods to find out if they have been successful.
