Whoop Whoop, a standing ovation to several of our amazing tenants who have secured youth provision in the area for the next three years.

Young people in Tang Hall are celebrating as the National Lottery Community Fund has awarded £449,552 for the next three years to continue the youth provision established by @tanghallbiglocal and to develop the outdoors elements of the programme based in Hull Road Park.

The project is a joint programme between @northyorkshireyouth , @c2youthcafe and @tcvyork , with TCV as the lead applicant. The proposal has been shaped with local young people and brings together the complementary strengths of the three organisations.

NYY will continue their outreach work across the Tang Hall neighbourhood and the popular Youth Club sessions on Tuesdays at the Community Centre.

TCV will expend the outdoors and environmental sessions based in and around Hull Road Park

Choose2 will support young adults with learning disability to join the weekly sessions run by TCV, and projects in the park will make use of the Choose2 cafe space out of hours.

The three organisations are developing a “young leaders” programme for the young people aged 16+

The project supports the expansion of community activities in Hull Road Park where TCV have been running regular activities for over 6 years.

A big thank you to players of the National Lottery

“Well done to TCV, NYY and Choose2 for get this wonderful lottery funding and being able to continue the legacy of Tang Hall Big Local “ Anna Hunter, Project Lead Tang Hall Big Local

A tale of generosity and community. The photo does NOT do it justice. 

For the second year running, this superhero family embarked on their heartwarming Christmas tradition. Rather than focusing solely on their festivities, they dedicated their holiday season to collecting food for those in need. The family has worked tirelessly to fundraise and beat last year's £800 with a whopping £1,500 food drop-off. 

Thank you to the residents of Windmill Lane, parents from Heslington Primary School and Heslington Football Group, which Arnie @johnniesonar (pictured) runs.

Tough work, especially in these temperatures but they are all still smiling. One of the reasons why we love them being based at the centre.
