Jobless spray a little happiness
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.”
