FENLAND Council for Voluntary Service will continue on a voluntary basis despite losing �15,000 of funding.
Fenland District Council withdrew the service's funding last month after it "failed to come up with a suitable business plan or demonstrate it was a viable organisation".
The organisation was facing closure as a result, but trustees have decided its work should continue on a voluntary basis.
Fran Monson, chairman of the service, said: "Having thought about the situation, we realise that the most important thing is to support our 216 members."
