Each year Bexley Moorings Project supports over 200 young people within the Borough of Bexley through one to one work and group activities. The young people supported are vulnerable and are referred from a variety of sources including social services and schools.
The main funding , provided by the Council, covers some of the costs of activities but each year separate fund raising events are organised to provide something extra. This year, the extra activities organised included a trip to Big Ben, theatre visit to see Wicked and a day out in Hastings. For some of the young people supported this will be the first time they have been to these places and taken part in a trip outside school.
On the 12th October 2012 several members of the ITRM team took part in a golf day organised by Bexley Moorings, to help raise funds. The team set out early on the cold Friday morning to complete a round of golf and the day finished with an auction made up of donated items.
ITRM made a donation of £540, helping Bexley Moorings raise a total of £1600. As an organisation we continue to seek ways of contributing and involving ourselves in raising funds for good causes and look forward to working with Bexley Moorings in the future to help support their efforts.
