THE COVENTRY Boys and Girls Club has received a £5,000 cash boost from the Morrisons Foundation to enable it to double the number of sessions it runs for the city’s young people.
The charity provides a youth club and social club and the cash will go towards funding new music and sports sessions, as well as the extra hours.
It will bring positive change to the lives of young people badly affected by the pandemic – enabling them to access opportunities and raising aspirations.
Nathan Bludnell, the charity’s operation manager said the Coventry Boys and Girls Club wanted to thank the Morrison Foundation.
“Since the Covid-19 pandemic, Coventry Boys and Girls Club have been working with more young people from all over the city and helping them access a regular youth provision.
“The new equipment will allow us to provide increased sessions and a greater range of delivery opportunities for the children with music and sport a key driving force in engagement.”
Joe Scargill, Morrisons Foundation Specialist, added: “The charity has been working extremely hard to safely provide activities for young people in Coventry and we’re delighted to be able to make this donation.”
The Morrisons Foundation was set up by the supermarket giant in 2015 and awards grants for charity projects to help improve people’s lives.
Since launching, more than £33million has been donated to hundreds of charities across England, Scotland and Wales.
