Community support

Funding level: £1,001 to £5,000

Description

The Youth and Community centre will help regenerate the area accommodating Prestbury Youth Club and for Prestbury AFC U15 football team. The centre will also include local groups, e.g. keep fit classes, youth drama groups, Panto, youth forum, multi sports, girls and grass roots football, our centre to other groups within our village such as Age UK, Friends for Leisure and other groups encouraging an inclusive use. We believe our project will benefit the whole cross section of our community, providing numerous opportunities for age related activities.

The benefit to the community:-

The vision is to create a Youth and Community Centre is to address the needs of all. Currently there is nowhere for our young teenage community to meet in the local area, the new centre will create a safe hub to share experiences and to inspire them to become involved in the community supported by the Tomorrows Leaders, part of the National Citizen Awards programme. We want to expand grass roots football in the younger age group and create a girls' football team encouraging more youngsters to get involved with sports. We will be the only inclusive open municipal facility adjacent to a new playground and playing field in the village, we will attract young families and the older generation.

We have planning permission approval, lease agreed, funding for a youth leader and have raised over £95k. The contribution from Aviva would be incredible and help us achieve our target goal of £120k.
