Seckford Foundation Gives Grant to Rural Youth Bus Project
A charity which runs a rural youth bus to help young people in Woodbridge is to benefit from a £4000 grant from The Seckford Foundation.
Just42 is a charity which supports young people facing challenging times. Their mobile youth centre bus visits local communities providing a safe place for friends to meet with a range of activities on board. Just42’s qualified and experienced youth workers lead activities on the bus including cooking, crafts and games and they are also available to discuss any problems or issues which the young people may be facing.
Graham Watson, director of The Seckford Foundation, said: “We are delighted to give this grant to Just42 so they can continue to run their mobile youth bus and reach out to young people who need help and support. It is the second time we have awarded Just42 a grant of £4000 as we value the important work of this project.”
Neil Fox, Just42’s lead worker on the bus, said: “We would like to say a big thank you to the Seckford Foundation for this grant which allows us to continue to take our bus out to the local community and help young people. Around 15-20 young people from the Peterhouse Crescent area of Woodbridge use the facility each week and it has become an important meeting place for them.”
