We are so delighted! After lots and lots of hard work, we’ve now become a charity.
We are based in Victoria Road, Scarborough, which is where our charity is registered to.
Our team, led by Michelle Padron-Kitching and Sarah Thornton, want to thank everyone involved
Michelle says: “This is excellent news and is the next chapter in the Futureworks NY journey.
“Becoming a charitable company helps consolidate our ability to help young people and adults in Scarborough. This milestone means we can apply for additional funding for projects that will continue to help people in the area.”
Sarah says: “Our objectives remain in line with the help we offer to our cohort, which includes finding employment through the provision of employability skills.
“Our hardworking team will be able to increase the support they already offer, which includes helping people achieve City & Guilds qualifications, vocational training, and assistance with acquiring life skills.”
Their first fundraising activity was the successful completion of the Cleveland Way National Trail, a long-distance walk stretching 109 miles. Part of the trail includes Scarborough and Filey.
Sarah completed the gruelling trek along with fundraisers Rachel Philliskirk and Emma Wilson.
Sarah says: “Our aim was to raise £500 for Futureworks NY and we smashed this target thanks to everyone who donated. We managed to raise £830 in total, so we’re delighted.”
We are in the process of planning their fundraising activities and we also have our retail premises Furniture Works, in St Thomas Street, Scarborough.
