Highbridge Youth Club celebrates after bumper charity donation

Members of Highbridge Youth Club are celebrating this week after receiving a bumper grant windfall from a Somerset charity.

The club has received a grant of £2,686 from Somerset Community Foundation that will enable them to provide a sports worker to run weekly sports activities and co-ordinate sporting activities during school holidays.

Somerset Community Foundation is a local independent charity that raises funds and awards grants to community projects and voluntary groups which benefit local people.

PCSO Gill Bawler, who runs the club, told "We are delighted by this generous grant which will enable us to introduce improved sports activities. A big thank you goes to Somerset Community Foundation."

The Government's Grassroots Grants Scheme has increased the small grant funding that is available to community and voluntary groups across Somerset with incomes of less than £30,000 per year.
