Malvern Town Women have been given a £3,000 funding boost.

The money comes courtesy of Malvern county councillor Beverley Nielsen, who has used some of her divisional fund to help the football club.

Worcestershire county councillors are each given a discretionary budget of £10,000 to help community causes.
