TEENAGERS in Cambridgeshire who would like to have more to do in the evenings and at weekends could get their hands on some cash to make their wishes come true.
The county's four "Youth Banks" now have money waiting for 13 to 19-year-olds who want to fund their own project.
The idea is that the projects give young people "things to do". Examples given by the charity which holds the funds, Cambridgeshire Community Foundation, include sport activities, art projects, and DJ-ing.
However, the charity said applications for a share of the funding would need to prove that they encourage young people to either be more healthy, safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution or achieve economic well being.
