A YOUTH Club in Bourne End will stay open after raising £700 to support the clubs running costs.

The money raised for Bourne End Youth Club at the community centre, will help pay for new equipment over the next year.

Youth Leader, Emily Fowke, said: “We are truly grateful for everyone’s support; it really was a community event.”

The club held a raffle, with many donations from local organisations including Cliveden, the Co-Op, and local store, Bourne End Cards.

Food for the evening was catered for by The Coriander restaurant with service covered by the children who attend club.
