A SHEFFIELD youth group is celebrating after securing financial support from a city business.

Ignite Youth Group has been picked to be the The Original Factory Shop’s charity for 2012.

Staff at the store on Manchester Road, Stocksbridge are planning a host of fundraising activities and are hoping to collect at least £500 for the group.

Manager Lisa Fox said: “A lot of local causes came forward asking for our support. On behalf of all of us I would like to sincerely thank all the charities who applied to be our partner.

“We are really excited about our partnership and have already been thinking about how we can raise plenty of money for Ignite Youth Group and I’m sure our supporters will agree it’s a worthy cause.”
