Donation for summer youth work

REGULAR youth sessions have been taking place during the summer holidays thanks to a donation from Clevedon Lions.

The community group presented a cheque for �525 to staff at The Barn youth centre in Great Western Road to allow evening youth work to continue in Clevedon during the school break.

A Lions spokesman said: “Due to the lack of funding from the council, Annie Smith, who runs The Barn, had requested help from local charities to continue two sessions a week.

“Each sessions costs �175 to run and, as it is a policy of the Lions to help where possible with our community’s youth, we were delighted to help.”

The Barn manager Annie Smith said: “It has been brilliant.
