Youth club in plea for more support

By Rebecca Hannant

As the cost-of-living crisis continues to take hold, Easington Youth Club has issued an appeal for funding to ensure it stays open.

The youth club currently needs about £8,500 a year to stay open, but each year it is facing
a shortfall, forcing to dip into other pots of essential money.

Organisers say they have yet to see the effect of the increases in energy prices, but a likely rise would mean that the club would need to raise even more money to cover its costs.

The youth club runs regular coffee mornings and craft fairs to boost its funds. However, to keep running the fairs, it needs support from locals and businesses.

The club provides a range of activities and a place to socialise for young people, and is the only Duke of Edinburgh Award centre in the whole of south Holderness. With limited funds, the youth club would be forced to discontinue its vital services.

To ensure that this does not happen, the youth club is calling on local businesses to support it by donating funds and raffle prizes.
