A MID-Norfolk youth drop-in centre has been able to get creative thanks to a donation of arts and craft supplies.

Project Rainbow in Watton has been given new creative materials thanks to a contribution from Norwich and Peterborough building society.

Paul Adcock, Project Rainbow treasurer, said he was pleased to see the charity getting recognition and support.

“The donation of the jewellery and craft bits and pieces was brilliant,” he said.

“Lots of beautiful things have been made and are now up for sale.”

Based at the former doctors' surgery in St Giles Road, Project Rainbow provides a place the youth of Watton can call their own.

Up to 80 young people attend the open nights every Monday and Friday evening.

Julie Gilding from building society, said: “I am pleased that we have donated something that the group will be able to create themselves and help raise funds.

“There is a lack of places for young people to go and hang out, and I think that Project Rainbow is a great idea.”
