The Committee considered a report of the Local Area Manager which gave a summary of an application for a grant made by Wessex Cancer Trust for the sum of £487.70 intended for staff training.
In considering the grant, Members felt that Wessex Cancer Trust had sufficient funds to support its own training. Grants from the Local Area Committee should prioritise small, local charities which depended on additional funding to operate. It was therefore deemed inappropriate to approve the funding for the grant.
RESOLVED – That the application for the grant be refused.
