Last week, we were delighted to invite the team from Core3 to Hartcliffe Club for Young People, where their generous volunteers dedicated their day to help improve our facilities for the benefit of young people.

After a long winter, with some severe weather conditions, Hartcliffe Club or Young people needed some attention, making sure our youth club was ready for young people use and enjoy throughout the Easter Holiday!

4 of Core3's incredible staff members joined us at Hartcliffe Club for Young People, where, with the help of our Club Leader, created a more visually appealing and safe environment around the club. During the day, the team litter picked around the club, cut down overgrown branches that were growing up the fence as well as raked and cleared the back garden, preparing the area for new additions coming soon!

Thank you to the team at Core3 for choosing to support Young Bristol with a voluntary day! Core3 also provided us with a generous donation, which went towards the cost of equipment needed for the day! We really appreciate your efforts and enjoyed working with you! We hope to work with the team again in the near future!

Young Bristol host interclub arts workshop 2024!

This week, we finished off the Easter Holiday period by hosting an Interclub Arts workshop for young people across our Community Youth Club network to enjoy!

Hartcliffe Club for Young People kindly hosted our Interclub Arts day, where we saw over 50 young people attend from across our Youth Club network, as well as a few young people who joined us from the Robins Foundation! The day offered a variety of workshops for all young people and staff members to enjoy! We saw young people from Ashton Vale Club for Young People, BS14 Stockwood Youth Club, Hartcliffe Club for Young People and The Grove @ Bedminster Down!

One of the workshops on offer was a graffiti workshop! Young people sketched their name onto a canvas, and then used spray paint and stencils to colour in their names! The group were then offered to create their own pieces using stencils and different spary paints. We saw some amazing artwork created, which young people all took home to hang on their walls! Thank you to Steven from Graffarty for running this workshop!

An egg-cellent donation from Leggwork!

During the Easter Half term, Young Bristol were delighted to receive a generous donation of Easter eggs from the local construction recruitment company, Leggwork!

Young Bristol were amazed when we received a donation of over 180 Easter eggs from corporate partner, Leggwork. The local recruitment company donated this large sum of Easter eggs to be handed out to all young people across our Community Youth Club network attending our Holiday Clubs, who may not have received an Easter egg this year.

It was amazing to see the excitement from young people when our team distributed eggs across our youth clubs! Thank you to Leggwork for your kind donation, we hope to continue working together in the future!

Young volunteer awarded Bristol Social Impact Award!

Young Bristol would like to extend a huge congratulations to Kyle from Hartcliffe Club for Young People, who was awarded “The Volunteer of the Year Award” at the Bristol Social Impact Awards this week!

The Volunteer of the Year Award at the Bristol Social Impact Awards is awarded to individuals for making notable differences and inspiring contributions through volunteering in their community!

Hartcliffe Club for Young People chose to nominate Kyle after he had overcome significant barriers to become a driving force at his local Youth Club! Kyle became a young volunteer at Hartcliffe Club over one year ago, as a junction to continue his mental health journey.

Since joining the group, he has been involved in organising a charitable event on behalf of a homeless charity, coached a junior football team to enter into our Interclub football tournament and so much more to support other young people
