At the moment I am involved in teaching lots of lessons about the true meaning of Christmas at some a local school on top of the normal schools work, and theYFriday gig is on Saturday and so there is lots of behind the scenes stuff for that.
We got good news over the weekend. We have been given extra funding from the Challenge 2000 and Children’s Fund so instead of the £4,334 we had been told we had been given we have actually been given £6,000. This is great news because it means we can buy everything that the young people had applied for, bar the laptop and table tennis table. However, there is theYouth Opportunity Fund & Youth Capital Fund to apply for in the next few weeks – just need to think through what we want to apply for – at the moment one of our suggestions is a sheltered bike rack as some of the young people cycle to youth club and we have to put all their bikes in my office to keep them safe. Do write a comment if you have any good thoughts on what we could apply for.
