Blaby & Whetsone Youth Club is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and organisers at the facility are well into their renovation project to mark the milestone. It already provides 24 football teams, a youth club and more than 450 members.
Working towards a £675,000 target to help develop the club into a community hub and refurbish the existing building and grounds, the organisation has received a £250 donation from our Midlands region.
