In an effort to raise funds and build on their public speaking skills, a group of young people aged 16+ held a Mother’s Day raffle outside Morrison’s on Sunday.

The event was a great success with all tickets being sold by the end of the day. Funds raised will go towards the Youth Centre’s Life Skills project for youth club members aged 16+. Congratulations go to the bearer of ticket number 058; Mrs. J. Francis, who was the lucky winner chosen at random by a member of the public.

Prizes comprised of vouchers for Ocean Village gym, The Leisure Centre and The Rock Hotel; as well as perfumes, a DVD and a wine glass, to name a few.

The Youth Centre group and staff would like to offer a huge thank you to all the local businesses who donated items for the raffle.

A big thank you also to everyone who bought tickets and supported the young people’s hard work.
