A group of talented young people shared in more than £1,200 given by a local charity.

The Bridlington based Parker Home Trust makes annual cash awards to young people under 18 who show promise in a range of activities.

This year 12 recipients received awards of £100 each, with one of £50, for progress in music, singing and drama, and various sports activities.

The trust is managed by three local trustees, chair Margaret Chadwick MBE and Chad Chadwick and Shelagh Finlay, all of them East Riding of Yorkshire Councillors.

Young people themselves, or their parents, can apply for awards but they must live within the Bridlington boundary.

The children who received awards were: Alanis and Emmie Beckett, Nathan Sutcliffe, Phoebe Dixon, Martha Dixon, Chloe Gregory, Harrison Male, Joshua Cramp, Jamie McKellar, Frankie Reffold, Nicholas Too and Grace Dennis.
