The Jobs Club in Harleston has been granted a lifeline after receiving a substantial cash grant to allow the service to continue.

The service, which is said to have helped 180 jobseekers and offered 168 free work skills training places in the last 12 months, was awarded a £5,000 grant from the Shelroy Trust.

Julie Helsby, Community Support Manager at Harleston Information Plus, where the Jobs Club is based, said: “We cannot thank the Shelroy Trust enough, it has offered the club a lifeline. We desperately needed funding to continue our services. We see two to three new people who want to find work each week so it is vital that we continue.”
