Youth Development

With our projects on hold through the lockdowns, it was great to get going again in October with a very successful Kids Kitchen 2021. Hopefully more to follow early in 2022.


Over the last year, projects included an opportunity for 60 children from local primary schools to visit Ipswich Clip n’ Climb, football tournaments hosted by ITFC, a Kids Kitchen in association with the Yeo Group and Felixstowe Academy, along with supporting three talented young people in meeting their sporting expenses and sponsoring four students at West End Week.

Thanks to all who have supported these events.
