We are a proud supporter of Carlisle Youth Zone
For many years we have been a proud sponsor and supporter of Carlisle Youth Zone and on Thursday 14th March, we visited to hand over a cheque for £2,000.
Our sales manager, Gemma Hodgson (pictured left), handed a cheque to Lynsey Buckle (pictured right) who is the Development Manager at the youth zone.
Carlisle Youth Zone relies on charity donations to run its services to help children from a wide range of backgrounds from across the county. The youth zone is based in Carlisle and provides a safe and fun place for children and young people to meet, make new friends, learn new skills and to get away from the pressures of every day life. Lynsey says: “Money such as this is always gratefully received as it helps us keep our doors open. Our numbers are increasing month-on-month and we are having to fill gaps due to the lack of funding in local services.”
The youth zone sees approximately 1,800 children through its doors every week. They rely heavily on their support workers and a team of volunteers. “We are always seeking volunteers to help provide support and to become role models and mentors to the children and young people.” says Lynsey, “Without our volunteers, we would struggle to maintain our services.”
If you would like to work with children and young people, Carlisle Youth Zone would love to hear from you! Visit Carlisle Youth Zone‘s website for more information.
