As part of Young Bristol’s 2022-25 Strategic Priorities, the charity will be focusing on developing long-term partnerships. Developing our partnerships allows Young Bristol to strengthen services and influence, which allows young people to thrive across our youth provision.
We were thrilled to welcome the team from Hargreaves Lansdown as they volunteered their time at BS14 Youth Club. The team worked hard to clear back trees in our car park and cleared out and refurbished the cupboard spaces.
The cleaning cupboard at BS14 is one of the final rooms that needed updating and refurbishing. This space was well-used and lacked storage spaces. The group built some storage units and painted the room, giving it a fresh new look and making it easier to navigate.
Our car park was also in need of some work. Trees and plant had been overgrowing, making it dangerous for our YCOW to park as the trees had been scratching the roof. The team were able to chop some of the dangerous branches away. This now has left a space space for our YCOW to park, with no worries it will be damaged.
Brilliant day volunteering with YB. Great to see how much impact they have on communities across Bristol. It was lovely to be able to give a helping hand in ensuring the BS14 youth club is the best place it could be”
