A2Dominion and neighbourhood group working in partnership to raise crucial funds
A2Dominion’s Community Investment Team and the Swanfield Park Resident Involvement Group (SPRING) are working in close partnership to raise crucial funds for a new youth centre.
‘SPRING for Youth’ - the name of the fundraising project, has set a target of £65,000 to renovate and repurpose old facilities into a brand-new, open plan youth space. The project has so far raised over £55,000 in donations.
“The volunteers in SPRING are great to work with,” commented Dele Ryder, Partnership and Fundraising Manager at A2Dominion. “I’m happy that we have been able to help with bid writing and providing advice for such an exciting project.”
The new facilities, which will take the place of the unused shower and toilets at the centre, will boast a ‘youth space’ with a kitchen, chill-out area for group work and counselling, a digital zone, and a flexible pool and table tennis area.
“Through fundraising, the club has almost reached its target of £65,000 with a huge helping hand of £10,000 from A2Dominion,” said Tracey Chapman, youth leader and member of SPRING. “The youth workers, volunteers and young people are all excited for the building work to start so that the club can have its own space and the young people can make this their own.”
