Joel and Leland's Fundraiser
We are super proud of our youth members, Joel and Leland (with support from Jack) for raising over £400 to help the homeless!
All this started with an idea between the boys to give back to the community, and what better way to do that then with a bit of fun! This week the Joel and Leland have successfully run 100 laps around Clearwell community field with support from family and friends, raising over £400 for chosen charity 'shelter'!!!!!
Here is a link to the shelter website, all donations welcome https://england.shelter.org.uk/
Our River Short Film
Over the past few weeks our youth members have been working hard making a short video all about the river Wye and what it means to them. We love the river but currently it's under great environmental danger causing the local wildlife, habitation and area of outstanding natural beauty to suffer. I'm proud to announce the launch of the video bellow! Amazing work guys! We are so proud of what you have achieved... We even made it into the local newspaper!
Listen to youth members' Chloe and Emily talk with youth leader Mark Bick on BBC radio Gloucestershire, all about our video and why we need to save the river Wye (time stamp 3h 16min onwards)
Hi - I am Mark, the local minister for Redbrook Church, husband of Sarah, the vicar and dad to Isaac. I trained as a music teacher then was a youth worker and community musician, doing quite a few other things along the way. I am hoping that we can make a real place of welcome and safety for all young people whatever your background or views. I will also be happy to help with any music making!
