THE YMCA has received a £1,500 windfall from the Co-operative Community Fund.

The cash will go on repainting the centre in Lisieux Way as part of a major restoration programme over the coming year.

Pictured outside the YMCA are centre manager and fundraiser Mark Llewellyn, Father Julian Laurence, chairman of the YMCA board of management, Melanie Hudson, of the Co-operative Community Fund, and John Godley, YMCA trustee.
