A county councillor in Hatfield has allocated money from his locality budget to help a bereavement charity.

Hatfield South’s councillor Paul Zukowskyj gave £300 to Cruse Bereavement Care, which provides support and information nationwide to those suffering after the death of a close relation.

Cllr Zukowskyj’s grant will fund training for new volunteers and help the organisation support children, young people, and adults in Welwyn Hatfield and Watford.

Volunteers help in a range of ways, and provide one-to-one support to clients in their homes.

The locality budget scheme has funded thousands of community projects since it was launched in 2009, supporting local good causes across Hertfordshire.

Each member has £5,000 to spend on worthwhile projects in their area this year.
