Grove Road Youth Club, Fishponds, Bristol, has been providing a safe, accessible and fun place for around 30 young people to meet 7-9pm term time Fridays, for the last seven years. There are weekly activities that all get involved with - ranging from drama workshops to fire photography, spin painting and much more!
The funding sources from grants and Local Authorities have dried up in these times of austerity, so we have a shortfall - without extra support, we will have to close by Easter 2018.
Running the Youth Club costs around £3,500 per year. This pays for a dedicated Youth Worker, some of the activities, rent and heating. We have fundraising events - film nights at the church hall every six months, and discos, and we charge affordable subs to the kids. But we need your help to fill the gap.
