A major Market Harborough charity is set to hand out immediate financial support to people hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.
The Howard Watson Symington Memorial Charity is offering one-off grants of £100 to individuals and families struggling to make ends meet.
Support is available to residents of Harborough and the Bowdens made redundant or who have had a pay cut as a result of the closure or reduction in business of their employer as a direct result of the coronavirus crisis.
