The Bridge Youth Centre has been granted £750 to help young people in Bridgnorth. The youth centre has been an active group in Bridgnorth for 24 years to help young people become secure, successful, proactive and independent.
The Bridge applied for Community Chest Funding from STAR so that they can run two weeks of outdoor activities with food also provided to help keep young people off the streets drinking during the summer holidays. Using the Crown Meadow site in Bridgnorth between 50 and 100 people turned up each evening to partake in the activities.
160 different individuals attended the activities over the two weeks which included Football, Ultimate Frisbee and Laser Tag. A local resident who spoke to the Youth Centre on one of the evenings said “Fantastic summer entertainment in Crown Meadow Park. The kids have had a ball, thank you so much. Top class fun and all free too. Amazing!”
