Young people from the Blend Youth Projects in Ripley and Heanor took part in a four mile fun run between the two venues on Friday - to raise funds for improvements.
Youth worker at Blends Kathryn Robinson said the event was organised after the two pool tables at both the Nottingham Road, Ripley , and Mundy Street, Heanor, centres had become damaged . She said: “We are trying to raise £600 to replace the tables. Our whole motto is ‘to raise aspirations and realise potential’, so what we are trying to do is to teach the young people to take responsibility - if they want new tables they have to earn them!
