Abbots Langley youth project gets a cash boost thanks to local race

30 January 2017

Young people at the Youth Connexions Abbots Langley youth project are looking forward to using new sports and cooking equipment thanks to runners who took part in the Tough Ten.

The project was presented with the cheque for £500 for the third year in a row, following the annual 10k race which takes place in the town every October and raises money for local charities and organisations.

The money given to the Abbots Langley youth project will help more young people from the area to participate in the programmes which promote issues such as healthy lifestyles.

Young people will benefit from a new mixer, food processor, blender and chopper as well as footballs, table tennis equipment, and badminton bats.

Tamzin, who attends the project, said: “We always cook the things that we suggested a few weeks before. I really like the complicated recipes because I don't get to cook these anywhere else.”

Simon said: “I love playing sports with my friends at the project. I'm looking forward to using the new tennis rackets, especially on the outside courts in the spring.”
