St Andrew's Club's Big Give Christmas Challenge closes in

Bring Back Friday Night Youth Club!

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is the UK's biggest online match-funding campaign and St Andrew's Club has been chosen to take part!

For 7 days from noon on 27th November until noon on 4th December, every donation you make to St Andrew's Club via the Big Give's website will be doubled! One donation, twice the impact.

Help us reach our target of £14,513 to fund our Friday night youth club for one year.

It can be tough growing up in Westminster. Young people in inner-city estates searching for self-respect may become involved in unsafe anti-social behaviour. St Andrew's is the only local community youth club that is not within a housing estate, offering a 'neutral' space. The consistent annual voluntary membership of c. 700 members is evidence of the great local need.

We do not currently have a dedicated mid-age-range provision for 9-13 year olds, and the Club is currently closed on a Friday. By opening the Club on Friday evenings, we will encourage younger members of our Senior Club to have their own targeted provision, easing the transition from Junior Club (5-9) to Senior Club (9-adult). This stepping-stone will provide a valuable transition for younger members, building motivation, confidence and resilience- crucial life skills.

Friday nights at St Andrew's will engage our mid-age range members through an inspiring programme of sport, creative and recreational activities, including party games and competitions, cookery and music production. They will be able to meet friends, learn new skills and have a safe and welcoming space in which to spend their Friday evenings.

We need your help to re-open the Club on Fridays, to offer engaging and invaluable experiences and opportunities for youngsters in a safe space. Friday nights will offer varied activities delivered by our passionate youth workers who are role models.

If you’d like to support Bring Back Friday Night Youth Club then we’d love you to join us in the #ChristmasChallenge18. Please make a donation during those vital seven days and your money will be worth twice its original value, thanks to matched funds from the Gledswood Turst, the Brocklebank Charitable Trust and The Childhood Trust.
