ORGANISATIONS who pulled out all the stops at this year's Port Carnival were rewarded at a presentation evening.
Among those who went to the borough council offices in Civic Way to collect their grants were Ellesmere Port Scouts, YMCA, Friends of Whitby Park, Army Cadets and Asda's Breast Cancer charity.
The Scouts were rewarded for providing a climbing wall on the day.
The YMCA arranged of bands to liven up the carnival and the Army Cadets took care of stewarding.
The Scouts and YMCA were given grants of £600 while Friends of Whitby Park, the Army Cadets and Asda's Breast Cancer charity were each given £250.
The mayor, Councillor Graham Smith, made the presentations and also made a speech alongside Ken Salter, chair of the carnival committee.
This year's carnival was a massive success with several thousand people cramming into Whitby Park to enjoy activities and displays.
The event raised more than £2,000 for charities such as the Hospice of the Good Shepherd and the town's Romanian Appeal.
Carnival committee treasurer George Parslow said: 'Thanks must also go to sponsors who made the big day possible such as Octel, Shell, Vauxhall and the Awards for All Lottery funding which donated more than £8,000 between them.'
