Yatton Youth Club have scooped a £250 prize from Quartet Community Foundation after their name was put forward by an anonymous local person.

“It was a shock to hear we’d won the prize, we weren’t expecting it at all” said Amber Dymond from Yatton Youth Club, “Thank you so much, it really will make a difference.”

Local charity Quartet Community Foundation asked local people to help with some local research which will be published later this year in their Vital Signs report. As an incentive they asked local people to suggest a local good cause to win a £250 prize. Over 550 people completed the survey and 469 suggested a local charity they’d like to see benefit from the prize.

Julie Newman, Philanthropy Officer at Quartet Community Foundation said: “As Quartet’s Philanthropy Officer for North Somerset I was delighted when I heard that Yatton Youth Club’s name was the first out of the hat as we know the staff and volunteers are working hard to give local young people opportunities, provide a safe, fun and welcoming space plus address local anti-social behaviour.”
