This week, The Grove @ Bedminster Down joined a number of different youth clubs to take part in the final session of NatWest Thrive with Marcus Rashford!
Our first group of young people this year have graduated from the NatWest Thrive programme with Marcus Rashford! This amazing programme has helped young people at The Grove think about their goals, learn new life skills and develop good money habits.
We heard some inspiring words for Luke Vernon, who hosted the NatWest Thrive graduation. He recognised all young peoples achievements across the programme, and the group enjoyed virtually interacting across Zoom.
The team at The Grove won a prize for finding the most things around their club starting with the letter “t”. They smashed this activity by finding an outstanding 34 items around the club!
This was a night to remember for Sennen as she won a Natwest Thrive award. Sennen was nominated for this award for her commitment throughout the Thrive programme. She put in 100% effort into all of the sessions and saw an increase in her financial literacy skills as result of the programme.
Thank you to NatWest, NYA and Marcus Rashford for hosting the NatWest Thrive programme. This has helped our young people build self-belief and money knowhow, so they feel confident to reach for their dreams!
We will be hosting a second round of this programme at Ashton Vale Club for Young People and BS14 Youth Club. Find out more about our Community Youth Clubs here!
