More than £19,000 has been awarded to 22 community groups in Cambridgeshire to help them through the pandemic.
Grants of between £250 and £1,000 from Huntingdonshire District Council's Community Chest is helping to pay for things like staff cover, replenishing stocks of personal protective equipment, food parcels, providing hot meals for vulnerable people and purchasing supermarket vouchers for those in need.
Sarah Conboy, from Pinpoint, which was given £1,000 and helps parents who have children with additional needs and disabilities, said: "We’ve all found the challenge of a pandemic difficult, but for our parent carers, it’s been a really difficult and worrying time.
"This financial help means we can focus on our parent carers and make sure they have what they need to get them and their children safely through this pandemic."
Here's how the coronavirus pandemic is being covered by the papers in Cambridgeshire:
- Cambridge News has a round-up of police action taken to enforce lockdown restrictions in the county
- Peterborough Today reports that a local school is donating "hundreds" of items of personal protective equipment to health workers
- And the Hunts Post warns of "scammers" posing as council staff, who are asking for donations to food parcels

A council has issued a warning after some residents received letters claiming they had "failed to obey" self isolation and social distancing procedures.
The letters, purporting to be from Huntingdonshire District Council, said they had photographic evidence of multiple infringements and while they will not "peruse" [sic - we think they mean pursue] the matter further on this occasion, they may do in the future.
The council said they were not from the authority and people should disregard them.
It says they "do NOT issue this type of letter about individual whereabouts".
"We remind residents to practise social distancing and self isolation as laid out by government guidance," a further tweet added.
