YOUNGSTERS who attend Biggar Youth Project have 2,000 reasons to be cheerful following a bumper grant from the Infinis Glenkerie Community Fund.
The Youth Project, based at the Auction Ring in Biggar, has been providing a vital drop-in service and activities for local young people for many years.
However, fundraising is a constant challenge, in particular attracting funding for essential costs such as heating and lighting.
Sue Pacey, project co-ordinator at the Youth Project, couldn’t hide her delight when she received news of the £2,000 grant.
She said: “We’re delighted to receive this award.
“It’s more than just a valuable contribution towards our running costs, it’s also a vote of support for our work and is much appreciated.”
