|W4 Youth Take Over High Road House|
Charity aiming to raise £1million for community centre
At a crowded High Road House, W4 Youth and Chiswick Youth Football Club, the community youth project for 11-19 year olds in Chiswick, held an evening to raise awareness of their charity. They recently received a welcome boost when local celebs Ant & Dec agreed to become patrons.
Around 100 people who attended heard a presentation from Sally Chacatté, Founder and Chairman of W4 Youth about the Charity's journey so far.
They then watched a DVD produced by the young people describing some of the crime they have faced and how they think they need a youth and community centre in the area to combat this and give them somewhere safe to go and something positive to do every day of the week.
Local Liberal Democrat Councillor Gary Malcolm said: "The Southfield ward forum gave the charity £10,000 because it is common sense that children need things to do in the evening and to help them meet each other and have fun. The items the money was spent on have ready given so much joy to so may people.

Colm Tamney, an architect presented a building design for a Youth & Community Centre in Chiswick that the charity is planning to build once reaching its £1m fundraising target.
