Organisers and members of Gedney Drove End Youth Club are celebrating now they have new games of their own.
Fleet Preservation Trust stepped in with a cheque for £335 following a story in our sister paper, the Spalding Guardian, which said on-loan games were being reclaimed by Lincolnshire County Council.
Club vice chairman Natalie Winford said the trust donation has paid for a new, giant Connect 4, giant skittles and other games.
The club set up last year has become a lifeline for youngsters in a village with no shop and little to do.
The club in turn is providing places for eight young volunteers who are studying for A-level equivalent ASDAN qualifications.
She said being chairman has also been a confidence booster for her son, Chris Harris, who has Asperger Syndrome.
Natalie said Chris has now become a local parish councillor.
She revealed the Spalding Guardian story had also prompted a welcome donation from Holbeach charity shop, Chosen.
Natalie said the club is grateful to the trust and Chosen but would welcome further donations.
