EXPERTS have helped Cantley residents claim an extra £8,800 in benefits after sessions run by St Leger Homes.
The firm, which manages Doncaster’s council houses, carried out a money advice initiative for those living on the estate.
Advice workers have helped tenants claim benefits, including Council Tax Benefit, Housing Benefit and Community Care Grants.
The company has to give financial advice to tenants which includes benefits advice and help on energy saving measures.
