Leave a legacy: Andrew Graham, Blackburn Youth Zone Chairman

“No other charity is doing more to improve the prospect and opportunities available to our town’s young people than Blackburn Youth Zone.”

If you haven’t already been to the Youth Zone, I urge you to do so; its an exceptional facility, offering the very best in sports and arts activities in a world class setting.

Like all great projects, the remarkable thing about the Youth Zone isn’t the building, its the people: those who give their time for free to inspire and support our youngsters; the young people who out their hearts and souls into the development of the project; local business leaders who had faith and backed us before a stone was laid. It’s a project built upon a huge amount of passion, belief and ambition.

Today, our Youth Zone is a rare example of a whole community coming together for the benefit of all. Together, we are raising the aspirations of our town’s young people, equipping them with life skills, increased confidence and independence which in turn will regenerate our town from the bottom up.

We’ve got off to the best possible start and the challenge now is to embed the Youth Zone into the fabric of our town and secure our future. Everyone has a part to play in supporting this incredible facility and it’s in all our interests to do so. Give us your ¬†backing now and Blackburn with Darwen will reap the rewards for years to come.


Andrew Graham

Chairman, Blackburn Youth Zone
