NOTTS County Council will continue funding Worksop’s HOPE for Homeless until the end of March 2013, it has announced today.

The Queen Street service feared its annual £149,000 funding from the authority’s Supporting People budget would be withdrawn in September but has been granted a stay of execution.

General manager Sandy Smith said she was “overjoyed” with the news.

“It’s absolutely fantastic. We can’t believe that they have actually taken all the political lobbying and petitions seriously,” she said.
