Announcing New Charity Partnership with Young Bristol.
We are delighted to announce we have chosen Young Bristol as our official charity partnership for 2021.
Young Bristol is a youth-driven charity that works to offer a choice of opportunities and experiences for all young people. Their mission is to be an outstanding provider of high-quality community-based youth services and innovative programmes that positively and sustainably impact the lives of young people.
We met with Lucy Saunders, Development & Fundraising Manager at Young Bristol and we were impressed by the vast list of activities and services available for the young people of Bristol and surrounding areas. From a safe space for children at their Youth Clubs to inspiring young people with the Outdoor Employment programme. Water activities at their Bristol Harbourside Activity Centre and a travelling Youth Club on Wheels which helps to reach areas whose centres have closed due to lack of government funding. The clear passion and commitment Young Bristol show their community is extraordinary!
We cannot wait until the restrictions begin to ease and we can get stuck into fundraising with the whole Channel team. Over the years we have successfully raised thousands of pounds for charities such as Bibic, Penny Brohn and 1625 Independent People with Quiz Nights, Coffee & Cake mornings, BBQ & Prize evenings and the Ten Tors 2 day hike.
In addition to fundraising much needed cash for Young Bristol the Channel team have also pledged their time to volunteer. Whether it’s’ help sprucing up the youth centre with a lick of paint or dusting off our green fingers down in the gardens, we are proud to offer our support.
