BBC Children in Need has announced that it has awarded a new grant of £30,000 to a local project run by Doncaster Foster Carers Association.

The new funding will enable projects to provide services to young people in the area and means that the charity now has more than £521,000 invested locally. This is the second funding allocation of the year, with additional funding to be allocated to projects across the UK throughout 2019.

Secretary at Doncaster Foster Carers Association, Tracey Sinnott, said: “We’re very pleased to have been awarded with this grant. Over the next three years we’ll be able to deliver a fun programme of activities for young people who are in care, which is so important for the young people we work with.”

Speaking of the new grants, regional head of the North at BBC Children in Need, Elizabeth Myers, said: “It’s always a real privilege to award new grants to projects like Doncaster Foster Carers Association, which demonstrate how our small grants programme makes a positive difference to children and young people’s lives.” Across Doncaster, BBC CIN is currently funding ten projects to a value of £521,161.
