MLOF chairman David Hide said: “ We are particularly pleased to have been able to help so many local organisations and needy individuals in this most difficult of years.
“ These latest donations are typical of the requests we receive for support . Although some of them involve quite modest sums, each one will nevertheless make a major difference to the lives of those who will benefit.
“ We are always happy to consider requests for help for those living in the Malmesbury area, who have a special need.”
