Scarborough’s Trafalgar Men’s Social Club has kicked off its latest fundraising campaign by donating £500 to a charity under threat.

The club presented Caitlin Burton and Jeff Boyack with a cheque as sponsorship towards a sky dive for SafetyNet, which is part of the Hope groups.

The 10,000ft parachute jump is being held in light of recent news that the charity has been unable to secure funding after September and is no longer able to continue.

SafetyNet supports young people, aged 14 to 21, who have been affected by any form of abuse, including physical, bullying, emotional, neglect or sexual abuse.

Since opening two-and-a-half years ago, the charity has changed the lives of almost 200 young people in the community through therapeutic support and counselling.

It is now appealing for support through donations.

The skydive will take place on August 31 in Bridlington.
