THE future of Rose Hill Junior Youth Club has been secured after it was granted charitable status.

Lottery funding which started in December 2011 is due to run out in November 2016, and staff at the club have been working hard to secure more money.

But the decision by the Charity Commission to grant it charitable status has opened up a range of new opportunities.

Rose Hill community worker Fran Gardner said: “Getting charitable status was a relief because it had dragged on for nine months and I am very keen to start doing some very serious fundraising for Junior Youth Club.
