Local Labour MP, Tom Blenkinsop, has pledged his support for Friends of Saltburn Cemetery in their bid for £5,000 for a project to help tidy and restore the cemetery.
Voting is currently underway for the OneFamily Foundation Community Awards to help fund community projects and Tom is urging local people to cast their vote in support of Friends of Saltburn Cemetery.
“I fully support Friends of Saltburn Cemetery in their quest to raise funds to help tidy, restore and improve the local cemetery. They really need support of local people too – £5,000 would be a huge boost to their project and put them well on course to achieving their aims.
“I’m also pleased to meet up with some of the volunteers today, to see some of the work that they have been doing.”
Friends of Saltburn Cemetery volunteer, Jeanette Jefferson, said:
“I’m very pleased that Tom is backing our project and has shown his support by voting online. I urge local residents to follow his lead and vote for our project for Saltburn.”
