Teens will be packing your bags to save their youth club
Young people from Marlborough will be packing bags for donations at the town’s Tesco store on Saturday, in a bid to keep their youth club running.
Volunteers set up a weekly youth club at the former Wiltshire Council Youth Centre in St Margaret’s Mead after the council closed the facility in wide-ranging budget cuts to youth services last year.
Marlborough Community Youth Project has enough funds to run for six months, but needs to build up its reserves to guarantee the future of the initiative.
The bag-packers will be on duty between 11am and 4pm.
