The High Sheriff’s Fund, BYCA, is reaching small local youth organisations in key parts of Bristol thanks to a sizeable donation.
BYCA (Bristol Youth and Community Action) is funded by generous donations to the High Sheriff of Bristol’s Fund, managed by Quartet Community Foundation. Last month the Lord Mayor’s appeal made an extraordinary £10,000 gift to the High Sheriff’s fund to get children through this exceptional year.
This one-off gift will support holiday activities for Bristol’s 8-12 years olds in half term and Easter. Grassroot Sports who have worked in partnership with Young Bristol at our BS14 Stockwood Youth Club, is one of over 20 groups who will receive BYCA funding this year.
Lee Williams DL Chief Executive Young Bristol:
“Through working in Partnership with community providers like Grassroots Sports Bristol, Young Bristol are delivering several school holiday clubs throughout the City. The generous support of BYCA and our corporates like SR2 Recruitment ensure we continue to provide fun activities and a free meal to all participants during these challenging times.”
During the autumn Half Term, Young Bristol’s programmes worked with 134 young people, providing 99 meals to children and young people who attended our daytime Holiday Clubs, in Bristol and BANES.
It is thanks to the support of funds like The High Sheriff’s Fund, that this vital work can continue.
