Programmes to help rehabilitate young offenders have been given a boost thanks to a generous donation from the Rotary Club of Maidenhead Thames.
The Maidenhead and Windsor Youth Offending Team (YOT), based in Reform Road, has received about £1,500 from the club after it heard the team was short on resources.
With the cash, the YOT has been able to buy an iPad for use in interactive sessions, educational books on literacy and numeracy and activity resources.
The new items were formally presented to the team by rotary club president Steve Harrington and community service chairman Tony Peperell on Monday.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
