In June 2015 we provided St Cuthmann’s Church with £500 to help fund their weekly after-school Youth Cafe which takes place between 3-4:30pm.
The café launched in November 2014 and provides a safe, positive environment in which local youth can hang out and participate in fun activities, developing new skills, forming meaningful relationships and accessing positive options and support. Refreshments and healthy snacks are provided, activities, games and magazines are available for use.
Sara Marsden-King of their fundraising team sent us a photo of their Youth Worker and a volunteer, helping at the Café and sent us an email to say:
"Thank you again for your generous support of the Youth Café run at St Cuthman’s Whitehawk.
Over the past 6 months we have used your donation of £500 to serve refreshments and snacks to the youth at our weekly Café. We see about 80 kids come through each week to enjoy the refreshments. Although less than this stick around until the end of the Café, those that do enjoy a range of games and activities and an opportunity to find out about other community events."
