A Bradford charity which helps disabled people has had a £20,000 funding boost.

Grant manager for the Lloyds TSB Foundation, Pat Greenwood, said: “The grant awarded to Clothing Solutions will be beneficial in maintaining a much needed service and improving disabled people’s self esteem and confidence.”
