Donation helps Bradby Club to continue supporting vulnerable young people

A CENTURY-OLD youth group has thanked a benefactor for providing vital funding which has allowed it to continue supporting vulnerable young people.

The Bradby Club for Young People has received £34,500 from the Rugby Group Benevolent Fund – the second instalment of a whopping £103,500 three-year grant, the most funding the club has ever received.

This funding is the backbone of Bradby’s ASCENT Health and Wellbeing Project, contributing towards salaries and additional project costs to support young people around a range of issues including exclusion or risk of being excluded, exploitation, gangs and youth violence, drugs and alcohol, mental health, relationships and contraception.

Club Leader John Robertson said: “This work is vitally important in safeguarding young people and their futures and giving them the support they need to achieve to their full potential.

“Rugby Group Benevolent Fund have long supported the work undertaken at the Bradby Club. Simply put, without their sustained and prolonged funding we would not have the diverse range of support and activities on offer.

“When times have been hard the Rugby Group have always been there to ensure Bradby has been able to continue, offering project funding, top up grants and Covid support.

“A huge thank you from everyone at the Bradby Club for Rugby Group Benevolent Fund’s continued support and funding. We couldn’t do what we do without you.”
