Mansfield Building Society’s community support scheme has handed Rainworth’s Detached Youth Project a cheque for £400 towards the purchase of sporting equipment.

Detached Youth Project works with young people aged four to 19, to advance their social education by providing structured activities which would ordinarily be financially unavailable to them.

Jodie Hoggard from the project said: “We would like to thank The Mansfield for the funds to purchase a variety of outdoor equipment and games. The group is run by volunteer youth workers and meets two evenings a week, every weekend and during school holidays.”

Mandy Whitten from The Mansfield added: “We are thrilled to be able to help. The projectoffers young people the opportunity to take part in structured youth work sessions improving their confidence, team work, art, health and well being.”
