Fox Hill Forum is celebrating after receiving a grant for the sum of £87,452 from BBC Children in Need.

This will support children and young people in the Fox Hill and Parson Cross area for the next three years.

The charity organisation is approaching its 25th anniversary.  They will shortly be advertising two new job roles to assist them in continuing their work in the community.

They provide after school, holiday and weekend activities. This helps transition children and young people into adult life and empower them to become active citizens in their communities.

Mark Wilde, Chief Executive said: “I am delighted we have been able secure much needed funding,

“With so little provision across the area, additional sessions will make a big difference to children and young people keeping them safe, off the streets, occupied and engaged in fun and structured activities.”

BBC Children in Need raised over £50m last year from people taking part in fundraising across the UK.

The live programme will be on BBC tonight at 7.30pm.

Mark said: “A big thank you to those who donate to BBC Children in Need, without your support we would not be able to deliver this vital work.”
