The Mayor of Louth, Coun Jill Makinson-Sanders, handed over grants to the organisations at the Louth Town Council meeting on February 12.

The Louth Area Autism Family Support Group, which is due to launch on April 12 at the Trinity Centre, received £200 to help with their start-up costs. When launched, the group will provide support for parents who have children with autism.

A cheque for £400 went to the Louth Dolphins Swimming Club, who Coun Makinson-Sanders described as ‘a credit to the town’.

A grant worth £400 went to the Louth and District Concert Society to help their bid to recruit more young people. The society puts on six classical concerts every year in the town.

A biggest grant was given to the East Lindsey Citizens Advice Bureau. Coun Makinson-Sanders handed over £1,000 to help their efforts to keep local offices open, and to give free help and advise to people who find themselves in all sorts of difficult situations.

A grant of £100 went to the East Lindsey Domestic Abuse Service, who provide refuge and support for women and children who are the victims of domestic abuse.

And Louth Old Boys FC, who run 15 football teams from the London Road pitches in Louth, received £200 to help them grow further.
