Sorry about this; we are flying through these questions.
Our local charity sector is vital to us as a community, especially now. I know that charities have been struggling financially because fundraising is down. In June of this year, I put £15·5 million into the charity fund, and I am pleased to say that 501 successful applicants received a total of £8·8 million. I am acutely aware that charities still face significant financial challenges, and I am working on making an announcement shortly on a further phase of funding to support them.
