A HOMELESS charity for young people has had a much needed cash boost thanks to a borough organisation.
Redditch Rotary Club handed over £1,000 to St Basils which works with people aged 16 to 25 who are at risk of being on the street.
The charity aims to prevent youth homelessness by providing support and advice as well as running school projects in the area.
It also has an accommodation project which runs from Beoley Road West and has supported young people since 2005, giving them their own bedrooms and staff are on hand to offer help and advice.
The money was handed over on Monday (October 7) and will be used to buy starter packs and essential items which many of their young people cannot afford, such as bedding, cutlery and saucepans.
Hayley Turner, manager of Beoley Court in Redditch, said: "We are so grateful to Redditch Rotary for the support they have shown us this year and in raising this money to help the young people living with us.
"They can then take these items with them when they move on from St Basils, which will be a massive help to them in making a successful transition to independent living."
