WORKERS from a charity that has helped fund a Newport centre for young people for the last three years were given a thank you afternoon tea on Wednesday.

O2e’s Nick John and Mark Robotham enjoyed a spread put on by young people at Sparkle’s Serennu Children’s Centre on High Cross Road in Rogerstone to thank them for giving £60,000 in funding for the project since 2011.

The teenagers attend an after school club at the centre and learn independent living skills in a specially developed living area.

Mr John said: “They do a sensational job up there. A little time up there makes you realise whatever problems you are dealing with is nothing like the challenges some families face.”

And Lucy Holmes, Sparkle’s said O2e’s support was “fantastic” and that some of the money donated by 02e will be used to build a new sensory room at the centre.
