A SLEAFORD based centre for pregnancy advice to young mothers has been given a cash boost by its local county councillor.

Coun David Dickinson, ward member for Sleaford, opted to donate £1,000 of his annual budget set aside for local good causes to Alternatives Pregnancy Advice Centre, based in Clover House, Boston Road.

The scheme’s manager, Angeline Hennessy-Thompson, said the community project was still in its infancy and needing to build up public and financial support to make it sustainable for the next five years at least.

They are also still working on launching a new youth café project for young people to meet up for advice and training. Mrs Hennessy-Thompson said they have secured a couple of grants and are applying for more while looking for volunteers.
