A Crowborough drop-in centre for young people has received a £1,000 grant from a retail foundation thanks to a local retail supervisor.
Sarahjane Hardwick, supervisor of Jones Bootmaker in Tunbridge Wells, applied for the Pavers Foundation funds through the employee-led grant application scheme.
Jones Bootmaker has been part of Pavers Shoes since March 2018.
Clued-Up in Crowborough provides free and confidential support for young people aged 11-25, on subjects ranging from education, employment and training to housing and money to health, family and relationships.
The funds will be used to purchase essential crafts and stationery supplies for weekly support meetings at the centre.
Sarahjane said: “CAMHS [Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services] health service has a two-year waiting list, which is why charities like Clued Up are so important.
“They support children and teenagers aged 11-25 by incorporating vital life and mental health skills into their daily routines while giving them a safe, non-judgemental place to talk. Thank you for donating to this charity. They are over the moon”.
