Did you race out to the woods or fields as a child? Find your own way home? Make a den in the bracken? We provide high quality Youth Club sessions for over 40 young people right up to 18 when they become Young Leaders. We listen, share and support them to become confident, happy individuals in our community - through play, fun, creative crafts and art, Carnival, music, games, litter picks, and lots of cooking. We help them feel part of our small rural town/big village, helping others and feeling proud of themselves. BUT they are not allowed or they simply don't use the countryside around them - and they can't afford the train fare to the nearest town amenities. So we want to restore their opportunity to dream on the local peat moss with its butterflies and wide open skies, follow the tiny river Roden, paddle and fish in it, understand safe use of footpaths and what farmers around us are doing, use the countryside safely and respectfully, love wildlife and ...GO OUT IN THE RAIN ! We will spend the money you give us on covid-safe transport (there is no public transport here to speak of), rain gear to loan, picnics, outdoor play and games equipment and the extra training and staffing costs for Youth Workers and volunteers. We raise a lot of money in our community - but we anticipate this low income community will take a big covid and recession related hit and we need your help to give our children and young people their rural childhood back. Many thanks.
