Last Friday’s Children in Need Appeal Show brought in £50.6m according to BBC News – taking the total amount of money raised since fundraising began 38 years ago in 1980 to over £1 billion.
Here at Grapevine Coventry and Warwickshire we are part-funded by Children in Need to run our Teenvine Plus and Coventry Youth Activists (CYA) projects to give young people with disabilities opportunities to forge friendships, build confidence and independence, and unlock their potential to live a full, happy life bolstered by a strong network and great experiences.
Thank you to everyone who makes this possible through their donations to fundraising – we couldn’t do it without you.
Here are a couple of quick glimpses into the fun and innovation that surrounds CYA’s activities… the first to mark their one-year anniversary last month and the second is their recent weekend away to watch a gig in Brighton.
This week marks 1 YEAR since CYA began ? In that time CYA has grown 8 times bigger, put on 5 major events, made it onto local radio 4 times & gathered over 400 followers on social media! We can’t wait to show you what we have planned for the next year ? #CYASaturdays pic.twitter.com/2nC0sTBjBr
