YOUNG PEOPLE in Barnsley are set to benefit from fresh funding for youth work charity GAZ (Grimethorpe Activity Zone).

GAZ, which works with eight to 25-year-olds to increase opportunity and provide alternative education, will receive a £1000 grant from construction company Esh Group to help fund training and give young people the employability skills they need to find work.

David Taylor, GAZ manager said: “On behalf of GAZ I would like to say a big thank you to the Esh Charitable Trust for the funding they have given us. It will have a huge impact on the services we provide for the young people of our community.”
