Peter’s is watching out for KPC Youth Club
KPC Youth & Community recently took delivery of a brand new television at the charity’s Pyle-based club house courtesy of Peter’s Food Service.
Wales’ premier pie-maker invited schools, community groups and charities to apply for a piece of Peter’s “Slice of the Pie” Community Fund with KPC proving successful in their bid for the £400 state of the art TV.
The charitable organisation, established in 1998 to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children and young people in the Bridgend area, will use the TV as part of their recreation service which also includes an outdoor skate park and multi sports court. The centre has also started a transformation from purely working with youth and now also supports parents and other unemployed community members, to help with employability skills and improving their skills through accredited training opportunities.
The open access project’s outcome is to provide a better way of life for young and unemployed residents and help them improve their future opportunities through the provision of digital upskilling, motivation and self-esteem building, accredited training and job searches.
Alison Mawby, Project Development Manager of KPC, said: “This award is fantastic for KPC and will benefit all ages attending the Centre. We’ve already used this for dance and exercise sessions as well as for film sessions for members. Thanks from all at KPC to Peter’s Pies for supporting us with this donation.”
Commercial Director for Peter’s, James Osgood, said: “KPC is at the heart of the community. It’s a place where young people can go to not only socialise but also develop their skills and potentially change their lives forever.
“Peter’s is delighted to help such a worthwhile group and we wish all those that use the facilities the very best for their future.”
Peter’s has given away thousands of pounds to local clubs, charities and projects across South Wales in the current Slice of the Pie scheme, entries for which are now closed.
KPC Youth & Community is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 17:30 – 21:30, and Tuesday and Thursday between 18:00 – 22:00. They also work with local unemployed in the daytimes to help them with employability skills and motivation towards finding employment.
