Droitwich Lions Ladies make new turntables on the bus go round

YOUNG people in Droitwich are dancing with joy after £500 worth of new music equipment was donated to the Wychavon Youth Bus.

The town’s Lions Ladies, who have been fund-raising all year, have selected the bus as one of their chosen organisations and charities it will be donating to this year.

The group recognised the lack of rural youth centres in the area so wanted to put their money towards a youth project.

The bus, which has regular stops in the surrouding villages and areas, now has the equipment needed to allow the youths to scratch and mix their favourite tunes and enable them to take part in lots more new activities.

Rob Mace, Wychavon’s youth bus and outreach officer, said the young people helped pick out the equipment and were already putting it to good use, entertaining themselves and learning new skills.

“We’re really thrilled when anyone supports the bus but this donation is a really kind one.” he added.

Angela Phillips, from the Droitwich Lions Ladies, said: “After finding out more about the bus it seemed such a good idea to actually take the facilities to where they were needed – all over the Wychavon area.

“We are thrilled with the music equipment which has been bought with our donation and hope the young people have a lot of fun using it.”
