Here is a snippet from our Summer newsletter, enjoy!

We’ve had a fun packed few months, catch up with our latest newsletter!

Burmantofts Space Hub
In Burmantofts we are hoping to launch a Space Hub in September which will cater for young people from Burmantofts and the surrounding areas, including Osmondthorpe and Cross Green using a minibus. It is an exciting opportunity but we are in need of more volunteers! If you know anyone who may be interested in helping out with this new venture please let us know!

Hyde Park SPACE has gotten off to a great start. Jack who has been an intern for St George’s has been leading the group and just recently got a job as youth worker for Wrangthorn Church from September so will continue to lead the group then. Hyde Park Space has been linking in with LFIS in the local school. Connecting more closely with other organisations in the city is something we have been wanting to develop so this is great.

Annual city wide day trip
This year for our city wide trip we went to Helsey Wood Activity Centre in Sheffield. It was a very successful day which the kids and volunteers both enjoyed. There were 3 different activities which each group did in turn - crate stacking, archery and an indoor maze. Crate stacking was potentially the favourite however the archery got increasingly competitive throughout the day (between the leaders…)!

Fundraisers 
We are really grateful to the people who support Space financially. We couldn’t do it without you! We have been lucky enough to have people raise money for us over the last few months including ‘A group of random Speech Therapists’ who put on a speech therapy themed panto of Cinderella and BBQ. It was very successful and raised over £400! Claire also attended a cricket fundraiser organised by Dave Paterson of Unity in Poverty Action which was also very successful. Thank you so much!

A massive thank you to everyone who supports SPACE, either through volunteering, praying, or giving financially, we couldn’t do it without you!
