Lowestoft’s Men’s Shed, a project designed to combat loneliness and provide support in times of need, was handed £4,000 to help continue its work in providing people with the chance to pursue hobbies, share skills and socialise.
Ray Ball, of Lowestoft Men’s Shed, said: “We will now be able to increase the variety of community users and the ability to plan events all year round.”
Pakefield Singers were given £749 to help pay for vital new equipment, while Kings Lynn-based Lactation Motivation received £400 to continue their work offering help and support for mothers in and around the town who breastfeed or wish to breastfeed.
