Frodsham Mayor Councillor Alan Oulton attended Frodsham Youth Association’s annual meeting and silver Duke of Edinburgh awards presentation evening last week.
Cllr Oulton handed over a cheque for £8,000 – the Town Council’s grant to FYA.
FYA Chair Sian Day said:
“We’re so grateful for the continued support of Frodsham Town Council. This money helps to cover our core costs which means we can focus our fundraising efforts to support a wide range of engaging and supportive activities. This currently includes a music group, Duke of Edinburgh, a monthly teenage market, an LGBT group as well as giving young people a safe place to come and have fun with their friends.
“Against a background of cuts to the youth sector, Frodsham Youth Association continues to grow and we have lots more plans for the future. As a charity we rely on the support of the local community and donations like this one to make this happen.”
