After a couple couple of years during the Covid pandemic, The Customs House in South Shields has something to celebrate.
It has been named as one of eight groups getting a share of £220,000 worth of funding.
£35,000 will go towards supporting young people in the local community.
The money has come from the Virgin Money Foundation and the '#iwill Fund' which was seen The National Lottery Community Fund and The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport invest together.
The other projects getting funding include:
Bright Futures; Big Ideas
The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art
Patchwork Youth Project
Northbourne Youth Initiative
New Writing North
It's hoped the money will help continue work that helps children make a 'positive change' where they live.
The director of The Customs House - which is credited with helping start the career of Little Mix star Jade Thirwall - said they were 'overwhelmed' with the news they were to get some of the cash.
