A group of Prince's Trust volunteers were congratulated for their work recently when a Preston Community Centre officially reopened following a facelift.
The Foxton Centre, in Avenham, has been given a fresh coat of paint to brighten up the building by volunteers from the Prince's Trust.
The young people contacted local organisations and companies for donations towards the project and then gave up their time to carry out the work.
They were supported by Lancashire County Developments Limited - the County Council's economic development company - Homebase, Avenquest, the Prince's Trust and Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service.
The centre was officially reopened by Lancashire County Councillor Anne Brown, Cabinet Member for Community and Partnerships, who said:
"These young people gave up a great deal of their own time to do this work and I'm certain the community is very grateful to them. The centre looks bright and welcoming and will hopefully encourage more local people to use it.
"Graffiti was covered up and the outside walls and fences have been brightened up. By tidying up an area, people once again value their community which gives the area a significant lift."
