More than £2,000 has been distributed to youth groups in the Swaffham area during a presentation evening hosted by the Swaffham Lions.

Ten organisations all received support after detailing how they would use any funds awarded during the club’s Lions’ Den event at the community centre.

Projects supported ranged from new kits for a football team to first aid training.

Youth clubs from Swaffham, Nar Valley and Great Dunham, as well as Scouts, Guides, Rainbows, Football and Cricket Clubs, Children All Together and Kuk Sool Wong all received money out of a total of £2,120, which was distributed.

Meanwhile, the club also raised over £600 towards the town market’s 800th anniversary celebrations during its annual St George’s Day quiz at the Assembly Rooms last Thursday.
