 Lorna Watson, Manager at, said:
We are extremely grateful to the Crowborough and District Lions Club for this fabulous laptop and their continued support.   Because of the huge reduction in local services and the fact that we are operating in a rural location we are now, most often the first and only port of call to young people in need.  An additional laptop will be such an asset, as it will enable more young people to have the opportunity to research homework, job opportunities etc., based in The Broadway, is an information shop for young people aged between 11 and 25 years.  It provides help and advice on any subject, including training & employment, sex & relationships, health & welfare, as well as alcohol and drug awareness.

Lorne added:

We provide private, confidential & impartial advice which is holistic and person centred.  We often act as advocates for young people in dealing with adult services such as teachers, doctors, and the justice system.

The charity, was established in 2001and makes no charge for any of the services they offer.  Their primary goal is to provide opportunities for local young people to help them resolve issues which are affecting their lives and those around them, together with promoting the goals of good citizenship and responsibility within the community.  Empowering young people to reach their full potential. have a Youth Council which meets every Thursday and they would welcome new members to join them.  Contact Lorna for more information.
