The Stokesley & Great Ayton Fund was created by a resident to help voluntary organisations, community groups and small charities based in, and/ or serving the communities of Stokesley & Great Ayton.
The particular focus of this fund is projects aimed at improving facilities for young people in the Stokesley & Great Ayton areas with the aim of reducing youth crime and anti social behaviour.
So far, this fund has distributed over £4,000 to support Stokesley Play Areas Action Group, funding new signage, bike racks, bins and benches as part of the creation of a skatepark for young people in the area, and new equipment for Stokesley Youth Centre.
