Pilmeny Youth Centre -Fit-4-Fun

£1,689

We currently facilitate two Friday projects,with an emphasis on sports and healthy lifestyle activities. Our session attendance numbers have outgrown the space. Young people have expressed a keen interest in assisting our session staff to establish an additional weekly session, exclusively aimed at sports provision, with sessions to be held at the larger games hall at Pilrig Park Special Needs School, local to the youth centre. We facilitated a “pilot” project at this venue from Monday evening’s 6.30pm to 8pm from Jan – June 2017, named ZONE+. ZONE+ closed due to lack of funds. Our young people have expressed the need to re-establish the project.
