A TEAM of unemployed youngsters has brought new life to a community centre in Bolton and developed skills as part of a fire service youth scheme.

The young people have taken part in the Prince’s Trust team programme — a 12-week scheme aimed at 16 to 25-year-olds, which offers challenges to help build confidence and motivation and help improve employability prospects.

Teams have to undertake a community project, so Bolton’s Prince’s Trust Team 35 decided to improve the Sutton Community Centre on the Platt Hill estate.

They raised more than £200 by bag-packing for customers at Morrisons supermarket in Bolton town centre and this was boosted by a grant from the Affinity Sutton Community Foundation.

The money was spent on play equipment and re-painting the main hall and stage area, with an injection of colour on the main wall and a 1950s-themed mural painted on the stage at the centre.
