Centre Spot are delighted to announce that BBC Children in Need has awarded them a grant of £26,735 over 3 years. This grant will fund the delivery of a programme of football and coaching opportunities for disadvantaged children and young people living in areas of deprivation. Through the sessions the project aims to support the young people to increase their self-esteem and confidence whilst improving their communication skills and giving them the opportunity to enjoy a fun, healthy activity.
Manny Abbeyquaye, Director at Centre Spot CIC said of the funding award: “Thanks to this funding we will be able to support disadvantaged young people to gain a host of skills that will positively impact their lives for the future. In addition, the programme will support the young people to reach their full potential and raise their aspirations. Thank you BBC Children in Need.”
BBC Children in Need funding relies on the energy and commitment of thousands of fundraisers and supporters across the UK who donate their time and money to support the Appeal. Whether it’s cake sales, wearing pyjamas to school or having a song and dance, every penny of the money raised goes towards supporting projects across the UK.
All grants go to projects working with children and young people living in the UK who may be affected by homelessness, neglect, abuse or poverty, or those who have faced challenges in their lives such as serious illness, disabilities and psychological disorders.
