Christmas Jumper Appeal Success!

The Christmas Jumper Appeal was a great success for raising both funds and awareness for Blackburn Youth Zone and our weekly ‘Eat Together’ programme. We raised a grand total of £4,362 and engaged over 20 businesses, Coal Clough Academy and Blackburn College. The Cardboard Box company got involved in producing the collection boxes and Workhouse Marketing kindly designed and provided all artwork. Thank you to all who supported the appeal!

The money raised will help families in need and has raised funds to keep this session running not only throughout the Festive period but for the whole of 2018. 17,000 free lunches were given out over the summer in Blackburn and so the Youth Zone’s Eat Together is helping to tackle local food poverty as well as providing a vibrant and welcoming environment for the community to come together.
