The Moorlands Community Charity has been selected to receive funding from the Co-op Local Community Fund.
The money will enable the charity to continue running its youth club in Old Goole so that young people have a safe place to socialise.
Jacky Crawford, Head of Service at the charity, told Our Goole: ‘The Moorlands Community Charity works to improve the quality of life for residents of Old Goole and the surrounding neighbourhood. We provide services and activities aiming to support and empower communities.
‘There are no scout clubs or other social clubs that are accessible without travelling across one of the busiest and most dangerous roads in Goole so The Moorlands Charity provides a much-needed service offering a range of games, sport art and a cyber cafe in one of the most deprived areas of East Riding.’
Other projects within the charity include; a migrant support service delivering outreach support in schools, libraries and health centres, a weekly cyber café for eight to thirteen-year-olds and a community café within the Moorlands Centre serving residents from the community. The charity also provides social event and outings for those who are over 60-years-old, providing contact and social interaction.
You can support the charity by logging in to your Co-op membership account and selecting the Moorlands Community Charity. If you’re not a member, please consider joining and supporting them at www.coop.co.uk/membership.
