PENDLE County Coun Paul White has provided a £500 grant to the Friends of Favordale.

The money will be used to improve the garden area at Favordale Home for Older People.

Coun White said: “Amenity space is so important for our older generations, and I am delighted that I have been able to support the excellent work that the Friends of Favordale do for the people who use the home.

“I hope the improvements to the garden area provide hours of enjoyment for the people at Favordale.

“I look forward to seeing the improvements when they are complete.”
