THE BLEND Youth Project celebrated its fifth birthday on Tuesday.

It was launched by the Valley CIDS charity on February 28 five years ago with the aim of ‘Raising Aspirations and Releasing Potential’ of local young people. A second centre on Mundy Street, Heanor, was opened in October 2010.

Head of youth work development Ian Tannahill said: “Five years is a fantastic milestone to have reached and we are thrilled to have engaged with so many young people and worked with so many fantastic partners on our journey so far.”
