Derry's new youth cafe is 'just magic'

A new café for young people to relax, work and play games with friends was launched last night by the cross-community youth group ‘REACH Across’ thanks to a grant of almost £3,000 from the ‘Change Something Fund’.

Located in the HSBC building in The Diamond, the M.A.G.I.C café will primarily be a drop-in centre for young people aged 14-17 years old, but it will also be used for training courses, film nights, band practice and other youth events.
