    Young deaf people are set to benefit as Doncaster Deaf Trust has received a funding boost from the National Lottery that will keep two popular Youth Clubs open for another 12 months.

    The National Lottery award of £9,678 will mean that the Youth Clubs, set up for young people, aged 15 to 18, can continue to run for the next year.

    Stacey Betts, Assistant Principal of Communication Specialist College Doncaster said: “We are extremely pleased that we were successful in our bid for this money. The Youth Clubs have had an extremely positive impact on young people, especially those that currently face barriers such as disabilities and caring responsibilities. 

    “The Youth Clubs offer a broad range of sports activities, craft projects, music nights, quizzes and some skills experiences; from growing your own fruit and veg to mending engines or applying make-up. Members are able to make suggestions about what they would like to do and we aim to try and make it happen.

    “We are working with Expect Youth who will be coordinating and managing this programme and we are looking forward to getting the Youth Clubs up and running.

    The two Youth Clubs will run on different evenings of the week between 6.30pm and 8.00pm.
