Young Bristol has come a long way since opening it’s first Boys Club in 1928. Now in 2018, our charity is turning 90, still going strong and has plenty planned to celebrate.
Today is the reveal of our new logo, which emphasizes the 90 years of community-based youth provision Young Bristol is proud to have achieved.
Throughout 2018, we will be holding a number of events to commemorate this achievement. We will be launching a 90th-year appeal, which will help to raise funds for an entirely new programme that the charity will be undertaking by the end of the year. Our youth clubs across Bristol will be holding their own events, raising funds within their communities and our fundraising committee will be hosting a celebration dinner.
In true Young Bristol style, our supporters will also be raising funds through amazing physical tests, including running the London Marathon, climbing the equivalent height of Everest at Red Point and completing the 100-mile canoe test in Wales.
To express our gratitude to our supporters, we will also be hosting a reunion event to bring past and present club members together, as it is the members, volunteers, and staff across the club network that make Young Bristol special.
We are proud and humbled to be entering our ninetieth year and are looking forward to the events that will enable us to continue our vital youth work across the city. We are also extremely grateful to all our supporters who have helped us to be where we are today.
