Retiring North Norfolk District Council chairman hands out cheques to local charities
Two Norfolk charities have benefited from cash raised during a council chairman's year in office.
Annie Claussen-Reynolds presented The Benjamin Foundation and Wensum Centre with cheques for £1,400 apiece during the annual meeting of North Norfolk District Council at which she stepped down from her chairman's role.
The cash was raised at events including an auction of promises, council dress-down day, and a concert.
A separate cheque, for £122, was presented to the Benjamin Foundation's young carers' group from a Christmas collection.
The Benjamin Foundation money will be used to support the BOOM! young carers' group and two other projects run by the charity - Ben's Workforce, which provides services to the over 65s, and Steven Newing House, a supported housing scheme in Fakenham for single, homeless young people.
