A CHURCH will be given £105,879 from Children in Need to help disadvantaged children and young people in Herefordshire.

Colwall Community Church, also known as Cocochu, will use the funding over a three-year period to provide youth club activities and support locally.

Tom Jarratt, a member of the Leadership Team at the church, said: "We are hugely grateful to BBC Children in Need for their support and know that this funding will go on to positively impact local young lives.”

The allocation comes as BBC Children in Need celebrates its fundraising total of £58 million for the 2018 appeal, which comes a result of fundraising efforts from across the country.
