In light of the measures set out by Boris Johnson on Sunday 10 May 2020, Off The Street Community Youth Project will continue to suspend all activities until restrictions to social distancing have been eased. We will continue to assess the ongoing situation.
At this time, we feel that we are living in an unprecedented time and we do not want to rush into making any unnecessary decisions at this moment in time.
In the meantime, in light of our award for a company donation in February 2020, OTS will pledge another £5,000 to the fundraising target, therefore leaving just under £5,000 to raise to date. Please take this opportunity to donate towards this project so that we are well prepared in advance once the restrictions are lifted and we can continue with our sessions.
Thank you for your support. From the team at Off The Street Community Youth Project.
New Minibus Project
Since 2016, the OTS minibus has been essential in giving us the means to carry out many fruitful activities for the children in our community. These include trips and events to:
– Mount Snowdon
– Football Matches
– Team building events
– National cycling events
The minibus was also used to transport volunteers to support aid work for those affected by the Cumbria floods in 2016 and has also been provided as a resource to many other community groups throughout the last 5 years.
Unfortunately, the minibus requires significant works/repairs to bring it up to an appropriate standard for safety and reliability. This is particularly important given that it is used to transport kids.
We are now seriously in need of a replacement to give us the ability to carry out even more activities for the children.
We have raised £16,695 (as of 25 June 2020) through the donation of a £10k by a generous company and £6,695 from others (including £5k from OTS).
Our Target: £25,000
OTS needs your support and your kind donations. Please donate generously to benefit our children and our community. We provide the vast majority of our activities on a weekly, regular basis free of charge as we wish to benefit as wide a group of children that we can. Now is your opportunity to help contribute towards our effort.
Note: We do not incur any charges if you choose to pay by Debit/Credit Card. We incur usual charges for Paypal donations.
