Five million reasons to smile

9th March 2009

The Youth Leisure Zone's (now The Link Thamesmead) parent company, Trust Thamesmead secures £5.65m funding to cover the cost of The Link's building, fixtures and fittings. Money was supplied by myplace (£5m), Cory Environmental Trust (£500,000) and Trust Thamesmead (£150,000).

The £5m myplace cheque was handed over to members of Thamesmead Youth Voice members, Cicely Blain and Jerusha Frimpong, who helped Trust Thamesmead secure the funding to deliver a world-class place for young people to go.
