Youth weightlifting club - Sunderland
Youth weightlifting club - Sunderland joined Crowdfund Sunderland1 week ago

We are seeking funding to further develop the Weights & Cakes Barbell Club, supporting children and young people (C&YP) aged 8-18 to achieve their full potential. The Club focus on activities promoting wellbeing, teamwork and citizenship using the medium of Olympic Weightlifting. We specialise in engaging C&YP living in deprived communities across Sunderland experiencing rising levels of household poverty and significant daily challenges e.g low educational engagement, poor health (36.7% are overweight by Year 5, 24.8% considered obese by Year 6) and high levels of youth antisocial behaviour with police calling to divert children “at risk of adopting criminal lifestyles”. Social isolation and bullying are also commonplace, leaving children withdrawn and suffering from negative mental health. C&YP have been affected by the reduction of out-of-school activities due to austerity. We address these challenges and more through positive and meaningful youth activity through weightlifing

MV Wearmouth is currently stored in North Wales where she has been deteriorating for 5 years. The project is to recover her to Sunderland by road transport so that SMH can restore her to seaworthy condition. She has a long River Wear history and was a familiar sight on the river during her working days.
