A charity is celebrating after winning thousands of pounds to continue running its youth cafe at a nearby college.
Aylesbury Vale Youth for Christ has received £5,000 from Lloyds Banking Group, most of which will go towards offering a permanent youth cafe at Aylesbury College.
The cafe was launched over the summer to allow young people to watch the Olympics together.
Director at the charity Dave Rollins said: “Because of the 2012 Olympics we wanted to have a place where young people could come and watch the Games and build relationships.
“Aylesbury College allowed us to run something over the holidays and we put the Games on big screens and the legacy after that happened was that we wanted to keep it going.
“Young people still need help building relationships and that is why we put in the grant application, inspired by London 2012, and we all wanted it to continue.
“It was absolutely fantastic to get shortlisted and incredible to get the most votes in the area and hopefully we can keep it going.”
More than 200,000 people took part in the public vote online and at Olympic Torch Relay celebrations between May and September to select who they wanted to receive the cash.
The charity beat off competition from other community groups to land the prize after polling enough of the public vote organised by Lloyds through its community fund.
Community and sustainable business director at Lloyds Paul Turner added: “We are proud to be able to help Aylesbury Vale Youth for Christ continue the great work they are doing in Buckinghamshire .
“We look forward to seeing the difference the award will make.”
