HAILSHAM Town Council’s Square Youth Café has received yet another cash boost, having been presented with a donation of £400 from the Police Property Act Fund.
The award was presented to youth workers on Wednesday 1st June, as part of the Square Youth Café’s National Family Week celebrations, and will be used to subsidise a group of young people to take part in various activity courses operated by PGL Travel (affectionately known by young people as ‘Parents Get Lost’), in addition to the purchase of arts, crafts and cookery materials for use at the Square Youth Café.
Hailsham PCSO Alison Bond, who presented the cheque, said: “Since its establishment more than ten years ago, the Square Youth Café has proven to be an invaluable organisation within the town of Hailsham. Sussex Police is delighted to be able to help youth workers at ‘The Square’ continue their great work by way of this donation, and I was delighted to be able to present this cheque to them personally earlier this month.”
Youth project coordinator Andy Joyes said: “We are delighted to receive this cheque from Sussex Police and extremely grateful to the property fund for so generously supporting our important youth projects.”
“Funding for ‘The Square’ is always needed in order to keep services running and to make sure that everyone gets the chance to use them. The young people who attend the Square Youth Café will benefit considerably from this donation.
