The JTYAF is delighted to announce that £100,000 has been allocated for awards to local young people in 2016. This follows the charity’s Trustee’s Meeting yesterday and a tremendously successful fundraising year.
In addition to supporting young people from the current 15 organisations the JTYAF has been able to expand and offer funding to 5 additional youth organisations including Christchurch District Scouts and St Michael’s Middle School. The extra funding has also made it possible to pay for a much needed 17 seater mini bus for the schools in the Ferndown Pyramid. This will give great opportunities to many young people for many years to come.
The JTYAF is also delighted to welcome Joe Barnett, Assistant Head at Beaucroft Foundation School on to the board of Trustees.
Pete Thornton, Chairman of the JTYAF, commented, “Without the time and effort put in by all our trustees, volunteers and supporters none of this would be possible. We can’t thank them all enough and this achievement is very much down to them. We have a very exciting year ahead and hope to see a great many young people benefit from this great charity.”
