Charity celebrates twenty years


LAMP, the charity that helps transform the lives of disadvantaged 18-25 year olds, celebrates its 20th birthday this year.

As part of their celebrations they are asking the public to raise funds and awareness for the charity.

Helen Snowden, LAMP fundraising officer, said: “We would like there to be 20 events in the community this year, to highlight our 20 years of helping homeless young people.

“We are asking local groups, schools, churches, businesses and other organisations to help us reach our target. We already have a children’s choir concert and a swimming group doing a pyjama day, which is fantastic.”

The charity will be hosting the annual Golf day and taking part in the Sponsored Sleep.
