With the help of all our staff and generous guests, we’ve helped make a difference to the lives of many young people in our local area through Cash For Kids, supported by local radio station Wave 105. In 2016 we raised £23,570 and here’s one of the charities we’ve helped in 2017.
Christchurch Open Awards Centre (COAC) run and manage all the services that run through Somerford Youth and Community Centre. They help to create a safe learning environment where young people can access of educational and learning resources. This is also a time where children can have a break after school and before going back home where the environment is sometimes very troubled.
The grant will help them to subsidise the cost of three trips (swimming, ice skating and bowling have been requested) for three groups of 50 kids each. In addition, these funds will help to purchase laptops and a printer /scanner.
By opting to add £1 to your room rate upon check out can really make a difference to a child’s life.
