Young people from Pathways 4 All enjoying the sunshine
Pathways 4 All in North Tyneside provides inclusive play and recreation opportunities for young people with additional needs and their siblings. The Trust awarded a £3000 grant towards the salary costs of the Centre Manager. The funding ‘enabled us to continue our opening hours covering 7 days a week and give more families opportunity to play together in a safe environment’.
Berwick and District Youth Activity Group provide activities and opportunities for local young people aged between 13 and 25 including participation in the popular Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. The Trust awarded a grant of £500 which helped a cohort of their members successfully complete their Gold Award expedition. As part of the award scheme the participants are required to be involved in a local community project and the young people have been making a range of improvements at The Well, in East Ord village.
The Trust awarded the WW1 Memorial Hall in Boulmer a grant of £5000 to help with the costs of a major renovation project. The hall, a former First World War barrack hut, was very difficult to keep warm and the exterior of the building had become unsightly. The villagers came together to make the project happen and the hall is now ‘very warm and cozy and no longer an eyesore.’
