Our Journey

Lewisham Youth Conference 2017
Lewisham Youth Conference 2017 joined LifeSkills created with Barclays1 month ago

This event will inspire and empower young people with the ultimate aim of tackling a number of issues that affect them. From initiating discussions about youth mental health to providing information on housing options, this event will cover a range of topics relevant to young people. We also seek to promote the wider Lewisham community by involving up to 50 local business, as well as showcasing some of the amazing - as yet undiscovered - talent Lewisham has to offer. While the event name suggests it’s only for young people, we know the benefits derived from supporting and nurturing our youth positively impacts everyone in the community. Support us in celebrating their many successes and achievements that go unnoticed.

We hope to raise £60K to be able to Astro-turf our school fields to use as a Multi-Sport Facility. We at St Mary's are an eco-friendly school, using as many outdoor facilities as possible. We currently have our own Forest school, Peace Garden and even a Secret Garden which we try and plant vegetables and some colourful plants. Unfortunately, our school fields let us down, as the fields are regularly water-logged and can only be used two months of the year. We hope to raise enough money to Astro-turf our school fields to open up more opportunities for the children at St Mary's and have a more enjoyable experience at the school. We really want to do this to give our children the opportunity to play more sport and a greater variety of sport. We plan to use the pitch to play football, hockey, basketball, tag rugby, gaelic football, archery and many more sports. We want to set up competitions with local schools and open the pitch up to use at weekends for the local community.
