Job­less spray a lit­tle hap­pi­ness

Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - FRONT PAGE -

UN­EM­PLOYED young­sters from Teesside have won fund­ing to help put a smile back on the faces of peo­ple liv­ing with autism.

Mid­dles­brough-based char­ity MAIN sup­ports hun­dreds of chil­dren and adults with dis­abil­i­ties, but it re­cently had to leave its premises.

The move has dev­as­tated chil­dren due to the loss of pop­u­lar mu­rals from the build­ing’s walls.

But now the Prince’s Trust has re­ceived £1,250 from the UK Steel En­ter­prise’s Com­mu­nity Sup­port Fund to re­paint them as part of a project at MAIN’S new premises.

MAIN man­ager He­len Jaques said: “We have been through a very dif­fi­cult time. It is ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic that the Prince’s Trust team and UK Steel En­ter­prise have stepped in to help us.”
