$2000 boost for emergency accommodation in Ashburton

A $2000 grant from the Ashburton District Council has ensured that two organisations can continue to provide emergency accommodation for people in the district.

Presbyterian Support and the Salvation Army requested funding from the Council to boost their emergency accommodation fund, which had a balance of $61.05.

Administrators Jackie Girvan and Judith Lilley said the $2000 would meet their needs for the rest of the 2015/16 year.

The Council has provided $2000 to the emergency accommodation fund for the last three years.
