Financial help from local group for festival
A local charity has donated £2.5k to help promote other charities at the Brentford Festival.
The award from Ealing & Brentford Consolidated Charities (EBCC) means voluntary groups can take stalls at the popular event - which is held in Boston Manor Park in September - for a much lower fee than usual.
It's the third year that EBCC has substantially supported the festival.
EBCC is a major grant provider and has delivered over 30 grants totalling £1,010,000 since 2004 to groups and charities within the Ealing and Brentford area.These have included grants to the Log Cabin, BFC Sport in the Community, Open House and Ealing Abbey.
