Youth workers and young people will be running the Two Castles 10k Run next weekend to raise funds for the SAFE youth club in Leamington.

The club,at the Westbury Community Centre in Brunswick and run by Warwickshire Association of Youth Clubs (WAYC), supports more than 400 young people and needs cash to ensure it can continue to do so in the future.

Community fundraiser David Skoppek said: “We’ve had people run the Two Castles for us before but this is the first time WAYC has entered a team.”

“We’re glad to do our part in ensuring the club can stay open for future generations to enjoy”

On June 20 fundraisers will abseil down the tallest man-made abseiling tower in the county.
