Port of Aberdeen awards £7,500 to the Foyer to deliver Community Projects18 Apr 2023
Aberdeen Foyer has been successful in securing funding which will help many programmes. The Wellbeing Programme, ran by Development Coach Nicky Donelan will see young people engage in health and wellbeing activities twice a week while also taking on a project to help their community.
Previous participants include Amy, 19, who said:
“The Challenge gave me more confidence and I made a difference; I got more exercise, and the course made me happy.”
Another participant Jamie, 22, added:
“The Challenge encouraged me to throw myself into the deep end with no pressure and no fear of failure.”
Aberdeen Foyer’s Development Coach, Nicky Donelan, said:
“I am so excited about the opportunities that Port of Aberdeen’s funding opens for us. It will have a massive reach throughout the Foyer enabling so many groups to make huge differences across Aberdeen city whilst developing their own skills, confidence, and community involvement and connections.”
The award will also aid other Communities and Learning Programmes in their Community Projects as well.
