THE Hub in Lyme Regis will be getting support and an added boost after teaming up with one of the town’s hotels.

The Alexandra Hotel and Restaurant will be sponsoring the youth club on a monthly basis throughout 2019.

Diane Earle, manager of The Hub, said: “Having monthly financial support from the Alexandra Hotel and Restaurant for work at The Hub youth club is key to keeping the sessions open and staffed by our professional youth workers, and is very much appreciated.”

Trustees of Lyme Regis Development Trust, which runs The Hub, and staff from the Alexandra Hotel celebrated their new partnership at the trust’s Christmas lunch for supporters in the run up to the festive season.

Kathryn Haskins, director of the Alexandra Hotel, said: “It is such a wonderful organisation and the space they provide for young people in the town is of such great importance.

“We hope to help not only financially, but also by facilitating those interested in working in the hospitality industry by offering training and opportunities.

“The hospitality industry has such huge scope for travel and amazing opportunities for young people. We are thrilled to work with the youth club and those that may be interested in this industry.”
