Big cash boost for trust
Youth group’s joy
A youth trust with outreach services in Rutherglen and Cambuslang has received a £ 2,000 grant from the STV Children’s Appeal.
Regen: fx works with young people between the ages of 10 to 21 in South Lanarkshire, delivering projects that support young people into adulthood and positive lifestyles, while contributing effectively to their communities.
They have projects operating in Springhall, Westburn, Fernhill, Burnhill and Cambuslang Circuit.
The grant will support youth project, The Street, which uses promenade theatre and issue based workshops to highlight the consequences of risk taking behaviour such as alcohol and drug misuse. This year the project will address the importance of consent in relationships and dangers of social media.
Nicole Connelly, cast member of The Street said: “The money we received from STV Children’s Appeal will provide transport for our volunteers. This helps us remove transport costs as a barrier to young people participating in the project.
“The cast and crew would like to thank STV Children’s Appeal for helping us continue to raise awareness of some of the dangerous situations young people can find themselves in and give them a space to discuss how best to avoid them.”
