CULTURE chiefs in Suffolk have received a huge cash injection in recognition of the value their organisations bring to the local community.
Suffolk County Council announced today that it is investing £750,000 in various arts groups and museums across the region.
Lisa Chambers, portfolio holder for economic and cultural development, said she was “delighted” the authority was able to make the donation.
“We have some wonderful cultural organisations delivering high quality across the county,” she said. “This money demonstrates our recognition of the value that culture brings to a community and we are committed to working with these organisations to deliver much more.
“Our partner organisations provide a service that is accessible to everyone and we particularly want to enable more vulnerable people in our communities to get involved in our arts and museums, whether that is simply enjoying a visit, taking part creatively or volunteering.
