Many come with complex issues or situations they are dealing with and the Club provides a friendly supportive environment in which they can thrive.
With your help we can continue to give young people ‘somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to’
How you can help?
To help our young people take part in adventures and experiences they may not otherwise have the chance to participate in, the Club has come up with its own wish list on behalf of our young people:
£500 will purchase equipment used by children and young people aged 8-12 years during the twice weekly Junior Youth Club sessions.
Outdoor Adventure Activities
£3,000 will enable hundreds of children and young people to participate in adventurous activities including outdoor climbing, gorge walking, kayaking and mountain biking.
£3,750 will purchase the much needed recreational equipment which is heavily utilised by our 200+ holiday programmes attendees. Projects run from 8am to 6pm each weekday throughout all school holiday periods.
Evening Youth Clubs
£5,000 will help us to recruit, train and support volunteers who will support the work and activities of our 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year evening Youth Clubs (Junior and Senior), which attract an average of 175 young people a night.
£4,500 will go towards the cost of the sporting apparatus needed to deliver over 25 different sports activities to thousands of youngsters each year. Sports sessions are targeted from grassroots level right through to skills development, in an all-inclusive environment.
Hard to Reach Projects
£600 will give 200 socially excluded youngsters free youth club membership, ensuring that they are off the streets and estates of Bolton and engaged in positive use of their leisure time at the Club.
Youth Enterprise Academy
£1,500 will go towards the cost of accrediting the work of youngsters who attend the Academy’s entrepreneurial and educational activities including CV and interview skills workshops and financial awareness projects
Anything you can do to help us with our wish list will be gratefully received.
