A two-year community project in Sutton Bridge has received a £7,032 funding boost.
Sutton Bridge Youth Club will provide weekly youth club facilities for two age groups, seven- to 11-year-olds and those over the age of 12, in the area.
Youngsters will be able to choose activities and contribute to the development of the club, in a bid to build community connections and address low educational attainment and the risk of young people offending.
Using money raised by HealthComplete Community Interest Company (CIC), through The Health Lottery, grants have been awarded by People’s Health Trust through Active Communities, a funding programme which invests in local people and groups in communities.
Chris Lunn, director of HealthComplete CIC, said: “The projects are extremely valuable to a wide range of individuals across this region; we look forward to hearing more about how these initiatives are enabling people to live longer healthier lives.”
HealthComplete CIC has raised £986,235, through the Health Lottery, for health-related good causes.
