THE CHIEF executive of NewStarts has issued a heartfelt thanks to Bromsgrove residents after the homeless charity was awarded £2,000 from the Lloyds Bank Community Fund.
Marion Kenyon said: “We are really delighted to have been awarded the £2,000 and want to say a big thank you to everyone who voted for us.
“It’s great to know that we have such support locally.
“The money will be used to provide equipment for our volunteers whose hard work enables us to help hundreds of local people.”
Residents voted in their droves for NewStarts to receive the cash.
