Hartlepool Chinese Association has applied for funding for a contribution towards their annual Chinese New Year Celebration Event.
The event, which has been running for over 8 years, is a chance for the local community from diverse backgrounds to celebrate and learn more about the Chinese culture.
The Association hosts regular singing, dancing and mandarin groups and individuals from these groups perform at the event for entertainment.
It is a key priority of the PCC to promote community cohesion and this event shows how Hartlepool celebrate different cultures.
The contribution the PCC is providing towards the event will pay for the stage hire and PA system. This event supports the PCCs objective of Securing the Future of our Communities.
