About this cause
We are a Breakfast, After school and Holiday Club, caring for under-privileged children of working parents in the DN35 area of Cleethorpes, and those parents going back into education to enable them to progress back to work. We take to school from breakfast club and collect from school later. We take the children out and about as much as possible during holidays, and utilise local beach, amenities and parks. Our main aims going forward are to fund-raise for a mini bus to enable us to expand our range of service to the wider Grimsby area schools, and to develop a child-friendly garden area within our church grounds for the summer break. We are a non-profit company and there's little to spare after our wages bill/overheads. Cash flow problems stem from parents having to wait for Tax credits.
How this cause brings people in the community together
We enable children to mix and develop bonds and friendships from other areas/schools that they would never have the opportunity to meet. We are developing our ties with other groups within the church community, such as Brownies and Guides, Memory club and Friendship at home. We hope to collaborate further with them during, as a result of this project, for the benefit of all.
