A Hartlepool youth group is holding a fundraising event on Saturday, March 19, to bring in much-needed funds for the Rifty Youth Project.

Hartlepool residents are invited to a table top sale and a £1 cafe at the Rift House Community Building in Masefield Road.

The event starts at 10.30 am with bacon sandwiches and toasties served for 50p. A range of meals will be available from 11.30am for £1.

Residents can also pick up bargains at the table top sale.

Stephen Akers-Belcher, voluntary project coordinator, said: “The Rifty is a fantastic Youth project run 100% by volunteers. We hope the wider community will pop in and support the event as we raise money to help keep the project running.”

The Rifty works with more than 200 young people a week and is free for anyone aged 6 to 17. It meets on a Tuesday and Friday between 5pm and 7pm.
