National charity Guide Dogs have been handed a grant to fund a young people's event in Chorley.

The £1,170 grant, approved by the county council's cabinet, will fund an Independence and Wellbeing event at Bibby's Farm near Chorley.

Activities at the event will help young people with sight loss to build their mental, emotional and physical resilience.

The funding for the grant was recommended by the local Chorley District Youth Council and approved by the county council's cabinet at its meeting on Thursday 8 November.
