CAMPAIGNERS trying to set up a centre for young people in memory of a Stafford man are still struggling to find a venue and are desperate to hear from anyone who can help.
Di Reynolds, daughter Tia Wynt and friends and family want to open the Danny Reynolds Centre in Stafford town centre.
It is in memory of West Way resident Danny, who was killed in a car crash in November 2010 at the age of 21. The driver had been drinking alcohol.
Since then his mum has been determined to create a place for young people to gather in away from the pub.
She is searching for a town centre venue for the site, which she hopes would include a meeting area, gym, creche, street church and opportunities for work experience and training.
They had hoped they might be able to use an empty county council building for a peppercorn rent when workers moved out and into the new Staffordshire Place.
But the campaigners were recently told there was nothing suitable.
Mrs Reynolds said: “There has still been no progress on finding a building. I would fund a lease from my own pocket if I could afford it. We are desperate to hear from anyone who might be able to help us.” Meanwhile, supporters are aiming to raise cash for the centre this weekend.
Young busker Joel Campbell will be in Stafford Market Square on Saturday aiming to pull in pounds and young campaigners will be bag packing in Tesco.
