Mark Green, Team Leader at EE in Doxford said: “We only get two charity days a year so we wanted to choose wisely in order to help a deserving organisation.

"Southwick Youth Centre hadn’t be redecorated for 14 years so we wanted to give it a new lease of life for the community to enjoy – We hope that people from the local area will take advantage of the free cinema room for movies nights and Christmas movies.”

The team at EE hope to continue working with the Youth Centre on further projects.
