Trowbridge Future £100 Business Challenge
Trowbridge Future have launched a £100 business challenge to help fundraise for a new, central, dedicated youth space for young people in the town. We have been running free, weekly youth sessions in Seymour and Studley green but unfortunately we have now simply run out of space! We recognise that Trowbridge does not currently have a central dedicated youth space for its young people and believe that as the County Town of Wiltshire, this is something that should be available. We are desperately trying to raise the funds to be able to obtain a bigger space. Young person, Felicity, says “I love going to Trowbridge Future youth clubs because they are a safe space to talk to a trusted adult and we learn new skills we can use for now and the future, we would love a bigger space because it would allow us to learn more skills and have space to do different activities”.
Can you get involved? We are seeking local businesses to have a little fun with us and to each try and raise £100 for our new youth provision by 31st October 2023. This could be as imaginative and creative as you like and you and your colleagues could help us to raise funds for our young people and our new provision by hosting a bake sale, going on a sponsored walk, ratting a collection tin around your office, having a fancy dress/dress down day or even throwing yourselves out of an aeroplane!
So, are you up for the challenge or know an organisation that might be? Your business will need to register with us via email. Our email address is email@example.com. You will then be added to our leaderboard and will receive confirmation of registration. All donations from the challenge will be made through our Local Giving page which you can find here… https://localgiving.org/100businesschallenge. Any donations received, will allow us to continue our important work with young people, provide fun, educational activities, staff training and help us with overhead costs of a new lease. We hope you’ll consider getting involved and we look forward to seeing how creative you and your team can become to help us raise funds.
