Bringing the town together this Christmas to support local families #FestiveFeed

Blackburn Youth Zone wants to bring the town together this Christmas to support local young people and their families.  Schools and Corporates get the chance to don their cheesiest Christmas Jumper on 20th December to raise money for Blackburn Youth Zone’s weekly ‘Eat Together’. ‘Eat Together’ runs at the Youth Zone every Saturday from 4:30pm – 5:30pm and provides hot meals for local families.

The Youth Zone have taken this initiative to help families in need and aim to raise 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.

People can donate to this appeal throughout December by texting BYZA01£ followed by the amount they wish to donate between £1-£10 eg. BYZA01£5

£2 will pay for a hot meal

£5 will give a young person a free membership to Blackburn Youth Zone and a hot meal

£10 will feed a family

Blackburn Youth Zone’s Christmas Jumper Day is fun way of raising money for a local charity that supports all young people of the borough and to help feed families over the festive period.
