A village facility has secured important funding to help support the young people it serves.
Hadston House and Community Projects has been awarded money to allow its successful breakfast club to continue after a trial period.
On top of this, cash has come from the Community Foundation to run creative art and graffiti workshops.
Project leader Scott Dickinson said he was delighted with the news. The funding for the breakfast club will allow the centre to subsidise the costs involved and employ the staff needed to supervise the children in the mornings.
Scott said: “It is clear that the breakfast club had wider benefits such as improved learning and behaviours during the school day so we are happy to be able to continue this.”
The centre’s café has a new cook who will be delivering the breakfast club and running the rest of the project’s food outlet.
The art/graffiti sessions will start shortly and will be free to attend. Spaces will be limited so it is advised to let the centre know early.
Funding has also been received for transport and subsidy costs for activities during holiday periods. The centre also helps people aged 16 and over with employability skills. Visit www.hadstonhouse.co.uk
