ISLAND CHARITY NEEDS YOUR VOTE FOR ACTIVITY BASE PROJECT

challengeandadventurejewsonproject2Island charity Challenge & Adventure are asking for your votes to help secure funding for a brand new activity base project in the heart of Parkhurst Forest to help young people.

The Newport-based charity work with disadvantaged and challenging young people, including those from disability groups, using adventurous outdoor activities and tailored support to build their confidence, raise their self-esteem and help them to re-engage at school, at home and in the community.

As part of a nation-wide competition being held by building suppliers Jewson’s, Challenge and Adeventure are seeking support to provide basic facilities to enable local and regional groups to offer affordable day/evening and overnight outdoor activities to benefit the people they work with in the community. Funding/resources are required for Phase 1 of the project which will provide 10 wooden sleeping pods, toilet and washing facilities and an open sided seating area to accommodate 40 people.
