I’m proud to announce that the Coalfields Regeneration Trust (CRT) will be providing the Round House Project with much-needed sponsorship – for those who are unfamiliar with the charity; CRT was set up in 1999 as a means of providing coalfields communities with a better quality of life, and has since helped a host of communities across England, Scotland and Wales. As one of the biggest ex-industrial cities in the UK, Stoke-on-Trent more than qualifies for this category, and with many of our old factories having been closed down, we now need to forge economic success in other areas of life. As a voluntary organisation with a deep-rooted interest in our community, we not only provide our kids with a positive way to let off steam, but also with a potential career path, should they choose to pursue it. If our kids demonstrate enough passion and ability, then they’ll have the opportunity to become coaches themselves one day, and if not, all of our members undertake the ASDAN Award, so they’ll at the very least be securing a respected qualification. We’re really excited to be playing a part in the development and success of our city’s rising talent, and it’s thanks to funding from charities like CRT that these bright futures are being made possible!
