I am delighted to be associated with this charity and become the patron. They do tremendous work in the community with both young and old and are looking to expand their projects. I hope to be apart of it for a long time.
It was a great summer of activities provided by Vallance. The activities starting from Monday 26th July for 6 weeks. Despite a few restrictions due to Covid-19 it was full on action and fun for over 150 young people from Tower Hamlets. Activities ranged from Sports sessions, Youth Club, Excursions, residential and fun workshops.
It was a difficult 18 months for everyone and especially the young people. Vallance secured funding to take away 12 young people who are a part of the Youth Club activities away for 4 days to North Wales resort in Snowdonia. They enjoyed many outdoor activities as well as team building games.
We are humbled and very proud as a organisation to be awarded the "COVID COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS" by the Canary Wharf Group. For 6 months during the lockdown last year our volunteers delivered over 500 food packages a week to vulnerable families, hospices and care homes.
