Young people from The Prince’s Trust are helping to transform part of a city club.

Volunteers have helped clean and paint a new sensory room at Preston City Trampoline Club, soon to be known as the Active Life Community Centre.

And leaders at the centre described the efforts of the team, joined by students from Preston’s College, as “fantastic” and a “massive help”.

Club manager Fiona Robson said the current sensory room was in a large space and became too cold in winter, and a new room within a room had been built.

She said: “As well as that, we’ve got some fitness stuff going in, and we are also having a dance school in.

“We’ve always been Preston City Trampoline Club, but we do more than that so we are going to be Active Life Community Centre, because we don’t just do trampolining.”

She said the Prince’s Trust team had helped clean and paint, while students from Preston’s College helped with plastering.

She said: “We are opening a community garden as well and we have had such a good experience with them that we are hoping they are going to come back.”

Team leader Daniel Scadeng said: “The team are enjoying it, they have already started to take a sense of pride in it and they can’t wait to get it finished to see what it will look like.”
