MORE cash is coming to Huddersfield from a foundation which this year prevented a local bereavement charity closing.
More than £1.8m will be handed out in Yorkshire this year, following the annual announcement by the Lloyds TSB Group.
Every year, the Lloyds TSB Foundation receives 1% of the group's pre-tax profits to give to grassroot charities.
This year it gave £5,000 to the Kate and Daniel Trust in New North Road, which was suffering from a lack of cash and faced closure. The charity helps families affected by the death of a child.
Project co-ordinator Lynne Burns said the contribution from the Lloyds TSB Foundation made the difference between the project continuing or closing.
Since 1997, 2,521 the foundation has given more than £13.8m to groups in the county. It supports grass-roots charities that enable people, especially the disadvantaged and disabled, to play a fuller role in the community.
Working with small community-based charities means that small sums can make a huge difference.
Stephen Robinson, Yorkshire manager for the Lloyds TSB Foundation, said: "We are proud that we have helped hundreds of charities in Yorkshire since 1987 and that a significant number of charities use our grant to attract essential funding."
