THE Midhurst Snack Wagon, an outlet for young people in the area, has received another generous donation towards its running costs.

Staff at Dexam International have raised and donated £200 to the snack wagon, which acts as a meeting place once a week for the young people of Midhurst.

It is staffed by the youth work team, and provides refreshments at a low cost. Help, advice and information is also available for those who require it.

The wagon can be seen every Tuesday at the bus station in North Street, throughout the year, from 7pm until 8.30pm.

The money was raised from the sale of samples sent to Dexam from its suppliers, and staff at the Dexam office and warehouse were able to donate the proceeds to charities of their choice.

Tracy Causer, who suggested the wagon received the money, said everyone felt this was a worthy cause and one they were keen to support.

Her idea was chosen by Dexam’s Managing Director, Roger Morgan-Grenville, from a wide variety of charities put forward from staff.

Colin Hughes, chairman of the Midhurst Crime reduction forum, whose initiative the Snack Wagon was, said: “Funds such as this make the service possible.

“This donation together with that from Budgens really does help the team deliver a valuable service to our young which otherwise would not be possible.”
