P4YP CIC has received a £49,984 grant from money raised by HealthCalm through the Health Lottery.

The funding will enable Positive 4 Young People Community Interest Company to run an ‘Activity Road show’ in 3 areas of North East Derbyshire for local children and young people. Starting in July there will be a variety of activities that include Boxing fitness, Dance Fitness, Mobile Skate Park, Graffiti Art and Fencing. They will run in Tupton, Clay Cross and North Wingfield. P4YP CIC Director Julie Marriott said: “As youth provision in our communities is diminishing, this grant will help us to offer our young people in 3 communities an exciting Activity Road show over 2 years.  This will encourage healthy well being and improve confidence and self esteem for many of our children and young people. Many young people in these areas have never done some of the activities on offer and by using local activity leaders this will form effective community links during and beyond our project” For more information about the project contact Julie Marriott on 01246 859210/ mob: 07727 426380/ email: info@p4yp.org.uk or visit:  www.p4yp.org.uk   For more information about HealthCalm you can contact HealthCalm Community Interest Company by emailing:  Info@HealthCalmCIC.org.uk or visiting www.healthcalmcic.org.uk HealthCalm is a Community Interest Company committed to raising money to address health inequalities in Derbyshire  www.healthcalmcic.org.uk   The Health Lottery is operated for and on behalf of 51 Community Interest Companies across England, Scotland and Wales, all holding society lottery licenses issued by the Gambling Commission. www.healthlottery.co.uk People’s Health Trust is an independent charity addressing health inequalities across Great Britain.

Hidden Stories celebration event

In April P4YP CIC unveiled the Hidden Stories project at the Proact Football Stadium in Chesterfield with over 230 people in attendance.   Each school involved had created their own exhibition of their area from research they had all carried out which were all on display at the Celebration Event.   The children had the pleasure throughout the project of filming all the people they interviewed about their experiences growing up during and post World War II. The DVD was screened for the first time at the event as well as the children doing some reinactments for the audience. The exhibitions will now go on to be displayed in their communities. This project would not have been possible without the funding from Heritage Lottery Funding and the support of: Schools Creative Forum Derbyshire County Records Office Midland Railway Butterley Heritage site For further information on this project or to request a DVD contact P4YP CIC on 01246 859210  ...
