Fernhurst youth club shows gratitude to helpers

Share this article

SUPPORTERS and friends of Fernhurst Youth Club are invited to a thank you drinks party every year and this year was no exception.

But in a twist to the normal drinks party format, it was also a fundraising occasion.

Guests took along a prize and played the Lucky Card game to win it or another donated prize.

When there were only two or three prizes left, they were auctioned.

This proved a very effective and easy way for the youth club to raise nearly £300 in less than two hours.

The club building is home to the Junior Youth Club on Tuesdays and the senior one on Wednesdays.

Both have full schedules every week, which have included football, tennis, pizza-making, lolly stick art, Halloween activities, and homemade Christmas gifts as well as the usual music, dancing, pool and darts being available every time.

There is also a small snack bar where members can purchase drinks and sweets.
