By Local Democracy Reporter

Four charitable organisations in Lincolnshire have been the recipients of the first grants awarded as part of the Coronavirus crisis fund.

The Coronavirus response and recovery appeal was launched by the city of Lincoln council and the Lincolnshire community foundation to support charities affected by COVID-19.

The appeal aims to provide financial support to local organisations experiencing hardship during the pandemic.

Lincoln Samaritans has been awarded £1,000, Bridge Church has received £2,000, while the Islamic Association of Lincoln and Green Synergy were given £1,500 and £2,500 respectively.

Cllr Rosanne Kirk, portfolio holder for reducing inequality on the council, said: “I’m delighted we are able to award funds to some incredible local organisations delivering essential support to residents and their families who are struggling during this challenging time.”
