We’re delighted to announce that we are now a corporate partner with the charity – One in a Million.
It currently costs the One In A Million charity, £780 per child, per year to deliver and organise weekly community-based activities and opportunities. Becoming a corporate partner means we can support this fantastic charity in working with disadvantaged children and young people.
They provide over 35 sports, arts and enterprise themed activities which are delivered through various curriculum programmes. Being so passionate about improving the life of young people, these classes help work towards opening new opportunities for young children to take. Many may not be as fortunate as some of you reading this article. Many may not have had the chance to take part in activities to better themselves and progress into a better life and this is what One In A Million is all about.
OIAM have five different departments that work towards providing a better life for children. They have the community department who helps to provide curriculum programmes, the corporate events and sponsorship area which work towards fundraising and obtaining support from businesses such as Puddle. They have the OIAM free school – a secondary school established as an academy where various classes provided take place. They also have a positive lifestyle centre which aims to create ‘responsible citizens’. These are mainly aimed at primary schools which give the kids an ‘out of school experience’. Finally, they have the Youth Offending team. The team is partnered with the Bradford & District Youth Offending Team, working together with young people in the criminal justice system trying to push them towards a better future.
Steve met Craig at One In A Million and was taken on a tour of the facility. As we move into 2017, Puddle will help towards funding events for children, working towards a better life. This year the charity is celebrating the milestone of 10 years operation. Over those years they have helped bring a smile to thousands of Children in the Bradford district.
We’re looking forward to working together in 2017 are excited as to what it will bring. If you’re interested in becoming a partner or simply want to donate, find out more about One In a Million and how you can help.
