A YOUTH service in Wiveliscombe is celebrating a £300 cash boost.

The In The Mix Youth Project was given the donation by the Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund.

The project, based at Café Random, offers informal youth work opportunities and experiences for young people.

Youth worker Nick Harvey said: “We provide a suitable setting in which young people can feel safe and supported.

“We’re launching a new project specifically to support young people seeking gainful employment or access to further education.

“As part of this we’ll be offering work experience in our café, and this donation will be put towards valuable training equipment.”
