In accordance with the Executive Procedure Rules of the council’s Constitution, the Leader of the Council was authorised to take the following decision on behalf of the Customer Services, Sport and Leisure Cabinet Member in his absence.

23      (7)  COMMUNITY GRANT AID – CASH FOR YOUR COMMUNITY– The Director of Places and the Director of People submitted a joint report which sought consideration of a partnership opportunity with the Scunthorpe Telegraph to provide financial support to local community groups.

The council had received an approach from the Scunthorpe Telegraph offering the opportunity to be involved in the Cash for Your Community promotion.  It was explained that this would run in the paper for 11 weeks with registration forms and voting coupons.  External promotion would also take place during this period and the voting coupons would then be counted and verified and the amounts won published in the paper in the New Year.

Resolved – (a)  That the offer to partner with the Scunthorpe Telegraph Cash for Your Community promotion be approved, and (b) that a partnership fund of £10,000 allocated from the Council’s Community Grant Fund be approved with the condition that funds allocated could only be used for the benefit of voluntary groups based in North Lincolnshire.
