EIGHT voluntary and community organisations hit by the recession learned today that they would benefit from more than �70,000 worth of economic hardship funding.

South Hampstead and Kilburn Community Partnership received the largest amount of �15,000, from the Emmanuel Vincent Harris Trust, of which Camden Council is the sole trustee.

All the organisations, including the West Hampstead Women's Centre, are Camden based voluntary or community organisations with charitable or self-help purposes who work for the benefit of Camden residents.

Cllr Andrew Marshall, head of community development and planning, said: "The Council is pleased that our residents will be receiving extra assistance during the recession.

"Voluntary and community organisations like these make a significant contribution to the range of high quality advice and support services on offer for Camden residents.
