PUBLISHED: 18:00 18 April 2018
A community group working with children on Weston-super-Mare’s Bournville, Coronation and Oldmixon estates is in the running for more than £40,000 of National Lottery funding.
Our Time youth project has been shortlisted as one of five nominees in the South West for ITV’s The People’s Project.
The group has requested £44,565 which will be used to employ a part-time youth worker to design, implement and facilitate a youth forum, which will become the project’s main activity hub.
Carly Butchers, development worker for Our Time, said: “The forum will use the grant to build on the current programme of activities which have proved to be a vital resource for many families on the estates.
“We’re urging people to get behind us and vote to help us secure much-needed funding.”
Our Time is hoping to run lunch clubs, day trips away and summer holiday camps.
