CASH STRAPPED SALFORD COUNCIL HANDS OUT ALMOST £200,000 FOR BABY OPERA, CLASSICAL MUSIC AND END OF THE WORLD PARTY
Cash strapped Salford City Council has, in the last few months, handed sponsorship to the BBC of £150,000 and £36,000 to the Manchester International Festival, which included subsidising an opera for babies and an ‘end of the world party’.
Meanwhile, next week, the Council is proposing to close The Grange, the city’s only residential care home for disabled children, despite opposition from staff and families.
