A new youth club aimed at providing 11 to 16-year olds in Hailsham with organised activities at the James West Community Centre on Monday evenings has received a generous funding boost from Hailsham Active.
The Monday Club, which was launched by Hailsham Youth Service last autumn providing activities such as 5-a-side football, table tennis and badminton, has received £650 in vouchers from Hailsham Active, which will go towards the purchase of additional sports equipment for use at Monday Club sessions.
Andy Joyes, Youth Project Coordinator at Hailsham Town Council said, “We are delighted to receive this generous donation from Hailsham Active and extremely grateful to them for supporting our important youth projects and activities in the Hailsham area.”
“Funding for our Hailsham youth Service is always needed to keep projects running and to make sure that everyone gets the chance to enjoy our activities. The young people who attend our Monday Club sessions will benefit considerably from this donation.”
Hailsham Active founder and chairman Steve Wennington said: “Anyone who knows what the Hailsham Youth Service team brings to the town will fully understand and endorse our decision to hand over these funds for more equipment for the youngsters in the youth club.”
“I would also very much like to thank all the members of the Hailsham FM and Hailsham Active’s Beat The Street team, who enabled us to win these funds in the first place.”
Hailsham Youth Service (HYS) provides youth work, support services and opportunities for young people in the local area and is managed and funded by Hailsham Town Council.
As well as running clubs and centres, HYS provides support services for young people, in addition to organising a range of recreational outings and activities, including those for the Friday Night Project.
HYS will also be launching a Hailsham Youth Forum soon – representing the town’s young people and their interests.
