Cash available to help local causes

EDITOR - I have been very pleased to help Beyond the Blue, a Sleaford based charity which meets on Wednesday mornings and enables many isolated people to meet together in congenial surroundings accompanied by volunteers.

This money helps with trips out, buys arts materials and helps towards the premises rent.

With Lincolnshire County Council money, I have also been of some assistance to Hykeham Sailability - another Sleaford based charity - whose members teach disabled people to sail.

This happens on Friday afternoons in the summer on Apex Lakes outside Lincoln. The money is being saved to buy a new rescue boat.

I am constantly looking for other charities in the town that this money can help in some small - or even large - way.

If any of your readers can help, get in touch by Fax at 10529 413036 or be email at
