A TEAM of local young people have been praised after transforming a community theatre as part of the Prince’s Trust Team Programme.
The group spent the last week tidying, cleaning and decorating the changing room and corridor area at the Dearne Playhouse on Washington Street in Goldthorpe.
The group were able to fund the transformation after raising cash from a raffle and a bag pack at Asda the week before.
South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Team Leader Rhian Oxley said: “Team Programme is about more than simply boosting young people’s employment skills. It gives them hope, confidence and the opportunity to make a difference.
“The community project the young people have been involved in is the perfect proof of that aspiration and we hope the sense of achievement it gives them will give them the self-belief which they can transfer to their future lives.”
