Supporting safer communities in the Humber Region


Helping heat the Pennine Project


Thomas Martin, High Sheriff of the East Riding of Yorkshire, is shown on a visit to Bodmin Rd Church Pennine Project Hull presenting a cheque for £4,500 to Ian Drysdale the Centre Manager for the project. In 2014 the trustees of Bodmin Road Church made the decision to try and establish a new centre for their community programmes. The Church purchased the former Pennine Rambler Pub to create a community centre. The Centre has already established two toddler groups each week, a community café open daily, a charity shop, a knit and natter group and a computer centre offering drop-in job club support, in addition to youth work that the Bridges project continues to deliver there. A considerable amount of work has been undertaken to refurbish part of the building. Refurbishing the rest of the building in Phase 2 will enable the youth work to expand and other services and activities to be added. The total cost of the second phase is estimated at £55,000. The Church will raise some of this through their fund raising activities. They approached the Tribune Trust with a request for financial support for the heating and a new boiler which will be essential to make the space useable during winter. Commenting on the grant Paul Cheeseman, Director of the Tribune Trust said; 'The work that has been put into this building already is tremendous. There is a great feeling of community spirit here and a real sense of welcome and inlcusion. The Trust is delighted to support Phase 2 of the project'
