To consider an application for Ward Flexibility Funding from the Cash for Kids Charity towards the cost of providing Christmas gifts to children in Stockport.
A representative of the Strategic Head of Service (Legal & Democratic Governance and Monitoring Officer) submitted an application received on behalf of the Cash for Kids Charity for a grant from the Ward Flexibility Budget towards the cost of providing Christmas gifts to children in Stockport.
The following comments were made/issue raised:-
· It was noted that the applicant had been encouraged to apply for Ward Flexibility Funding at a meeting of the Children & Families Scrutiny Committee held 13 October.
· The applicant had stated that any funding granted by Stockport would be ringfenced within in Stockport, but that it could not be guaranteed that funding granted by an Area Committee would be spent within that committee’s specific area.
RESOLVED - That approval be given to an application received from the Cash for Kids Charity for a grant of £999 from the Ward Flexibility Budget towards the cost of providing Christmas gifts to disadvantaged children in Stockport.
