£30,000 joy for centre
The Percy Community Centre has won £30,000 from bank giant Santander's Social Enterprise Development Awards to help fund improvements.
The centre offers room hire for parties, conferences and sports activities along with child care, after-school clubs and free services to families.
It entered the Santander business competition to help fund the development of new office space to support social enterprise start-ups and local charities and to create a high-quality conference facility.
Santander regional director Julian Alexander said: "At Santander we are committed to investing in and supporting communities in the South West, and the Social Enterprise Development Awards were set up to help enterprises looking to expand.

"The centre carried out a thorough review of the potential for their new ventures and presented a compelling business plan that will lead to a substantial increase in their revenue."
Centre manager Adam Pitt said: "At the moment with a sports hall on the first floor, our meeting rooms on the ground floor can't be used at the same time. Thanks to the Santander award we'll be able to install acoustic installation and along with flexible staging and new media systems, we'll have a fantastic space to hire out.
"With this growth in our business we'll be able to deliver many more free services to local families as a result."
