A youth musical theatre group based in Little Downham has bagged a £2,626 funding boost.
Youth Acts UP was awarded the money thanks to Tesco's Bags of Help community grant scheme, which is run in partnership with environmental charity Groundwork.
The money will go towards the group putting on a summer musical and winter pantomime, says Youth Acts UP producer Carol Hebbard.
"The aim is to increase confidence in young people, teach them new skills, team work, listening skills and many more," she said.
"They will make new friends and bring the community together twice a year to see their performances of a musical in the summer and a pantomime in the winter.
"Seeing the audiences arrive to watch these very special young people consistently amazes me."
Becky Green, director, added: "We are so proud of everything they have achieved."
