We are pleased to announce extended Youth Club Sessions have started at the Youth Club on New Oxford Road.

The additional sessions build on to the existing Blue Chair Youth Cafe that has been run by our partners from Mexborough Life Church for the past three years. Funding from Yorkshire Sport Foundation supports the new Tuesday evening sports themed session run by James Clark, who will be joined by Scott Campbell, Claire Laybourne (International Taekwondo Referee and coach at Scorpion Taekwondo Mexborough) and other coaches to run a variety of sporting activities from table tennis to taekwondo.

Doncaster Council Opportunity Area funding supports our Wednesday and Thursday sessions, run by Darren Gough and Dean Mangham.

We are grateful to our extended partners, EPIC Doncaster, Doncaster Children’s Services Trust, Doncaster Safer Communities Teams and South Yorkshire Police.

Mexborough Youth Club Trustee, Sean Gibbons, said “this is a fantastic example of partnership work between the third sector and local government bodies to improve outcomes for the young people in our amazing town.”.’
