The Rugby Group Benevolent Fund has ridden to the rescue of Hill Street Youth and Community Centre’s summer holiday activity programme for U19s. Its £10,000 donation has ensured the Summer Programme will run fully. This includes various activities across the summer academic holiday period. Some remaining money will support the overall annual youth programme expenditure.
Manager Grant Duncan said: “Last year we had great feedback from the 200 plus young people that accessed it, so realising there was a risk that we may not be able to do the same was very worrying. We are therefore very grateful to RGBF for their generosity, and look forward to developing our relationship over time.
