Youngsters have a revamped space to hang out at The Gap in Warwick

Leamington Editorial 2nd Oct, 2023   0

YOUNGSTERS at The Gap in Warwick now have a revamped space to hang out.

The charity, that has been running a community centre for locals for more than 20 years, received a donation of £2,127 from the Morrisons Foundation, which has been used to redecorate the youth room.

The youngsters helped out creating a brightly coloured mural.

The much-needed cash has also covered the costs of installing new TVs, video games and a new multi games table for pool, table football and ice hockey.

The Gap youth team leader Josh Hucklesby said: “We’re very grateful to the Morrisons Foundation and excited to be able to revamp our youth room at last, thanks to this generous funding.

“The young people have been asking us to redo the youth room for a while and we’ve not been able to use the space fully due to lack of equipment. They love having their own room, which will now be fresh, cosy, and modern, where they can play games, be creative, and chill out with their mates.

“It’s a huge boost to the youth club experience for disadvantaged young people coming to The Gap youth club, who can’t afford things like games consoles at home. They will think it’s very cool, so thank you very much.”
