A YOUTH club is pleading for donations after organisers found they struggled to cope when the membership doubled.
Crofton Youth Club in Stubbington caters for youngsters aged between 10 and 15 and runs three times a week.
But recently, the number of members has gone from 46 to 100 and organisers are pleading for help from the local community through donations and volunteers.
Vicky Stabler, youth leader of the Crofton Youth Project, said: ‘It’s been fantastic that we have increased our membership but we have doubled our running costs.
‘There are lots of things that we want to do with the children now but we don’t want to increase their subs.
‘There is a need for the service in the community.
‘There aren’t many youth clubs around nowadays.
‘There are a lot of children who would benefit from more money being put into the youth club or would benefit from people coming in.’
