County councillors across Lincolnshire have £2,000 burning a hole in their pocket to be given to worthy causes.

Lincolnshire County Council voted to continue its Big Society Fund which sees each councillor receive £2,000 to distribute to worthy causes on their patch. Coun Ray Wootten of Grantham North said he is appealing for groups and organisations to get in touch. He said: “I’ve allocated £250 already but I’m looking for applications from clubs that could use perhaps £100 or £200 to make a difference. They have to be in my ward which runs from Ancaster down to North Parade.”
