Two youth projects across the Forest Heath district have received a funding boost.

The Newmarket Lions have donated £1,000 to Street Sports, which runs free sports sessions for young people in Newmarket, Red Lodge, Mildenhall and Brandon, and £925 to School’s Out, a programme of day and week-long camps for children in Newmarket and Brandon.

Both projects are organised by Anglia Community Leisure.
