Over the last 9 years Carlisle Youth Zone has supported 12,000 young people. Our team are dedicated to building relationships with kids which help guide them through childhood and adolescence.
Roughly a third of the young people who visit CYZ are struggling to keep up with the expectations and complexities of modern life. All too often this stems from financial difficulties at home.
We don't believe any child should go without a Christmas and we want to ensure that our party creates memories and lots of smiles.
The money raised will go towards Turkeys and all the trimmings, gallons of fizzy pop, crackers, selection boxes, balloon helium, decorations, mini presents and prizes, a snow machine, a visit from Santa and everything else it takes to make Christmas special.
As well as the party we will be taking a group of young people on a secret special Christmassy trip on Monday 23rd December we want to make sure that this trip is as affordable as possible and in some cases we need to cover the cost entirely. This campaign will help us make this trip a reality.
