Funding a great 2018 for Acomb Youth Club

I am so pleased that Acomb Youth Club has been given a £1500 funding boost, raised by members of the Meeting of the Waters Lodge of the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes who chose the Youth Club as its charity of the year for 2017. RAOB members support the aims of charity, philanthropy and brotherhood and carried out fundraising throughout the year to support the Youth Club, which was started three years ago for children aged over eight by Hexham Youth Initiative and Acomb Parish Council. It is hoped that the money will be used to launch a seniors session for local teenagers and to fund outings in 2018.

It is always great to see members of the community coming together to support each other, and I hope that this funding will help to make 2018 the best year yet for Acomb Youth Club.
