THREE months after being given £5,000 a youth unemployment project has been given another £5,000.

The voluntary community company BEST, Bridport Enterprise Supporting Training Ltd, is celebrating winning another commission to work with the unemployed across West Dorset through its Aspire Project.

In December, BEST was awarded almost £5,000 by Skills and Learning, This has now been followed by a further commission of more than £5,000 from the Project and Partnership Fund, also administered by Skills and Learning.

Project designer and voluntary company director Arthur Woodgate said: “This funding hasn’t been achieved by producing the right noises at the right time, but on delivering the necessary results.”

Those results, Mr Woodgate, said were largely down to Aspire co-ordinator, Charlotte Storey.

He said: “Charlotte, an award-winning teacher, injects a breath of fresh air into the training she provides.”
