Borough and county councillor Alison Austin has donated £500 from the Councillor Big Society Fund to support a popular mobile youth project.

The RoadHog Bus works with churches in the Boston area, and was visited by more than 4,000 young people last year.

Staffed by volunteers, it visits several rural locations, providing young people with a safe place to go and meet others. They can take part in games and activities, or benefit from the chance to use the quiet space upstairs to talk to supportive adult volunteers.

Coun Austin said: “I’ve chosen to give all my awards to support young people in the south Boston area including this donation to the RoadHog Bus to help with their running costs. They provide a fantastic service to young people, many of whom live in fairly isolated locations, plus it gives them a place to meet friends in a supportive environment.”
