We enter our 12th year at HYPE looking back on what was our busiest year to date in 2019 working with 6363 children and young people.
Walk Run Cycle
This month we launched our Walk Run Cycle Play initiative that has seen 92 people register to walk run or cycle along the longest promenade in the UK from Seacombe to New Brighton. We also have 160 children playing football every Sunday morning at Guinea Gap leisure centre due to us moving a Sunday junior league across to the perfect location in Seacombe. Our focus with this project is to encourage more people to be more active more often on Sunday mornings.
Partnership with Airborn Academy
One of our monthly trips took our young people to our long term Partners from Vauxhall at Airborn Academy https://www.airbornacademy.com. Great opportunity for our young people to express and challenge themselves.
Re-opening the Bike Shop
Our bike shop on Grange Road West re-opened its door on 7th January and during what some shopkeepers might say is their quietest month, 12 bikes were sold and we received 14 bikes as
donations to work on.
Combating knife crime
Football, bike workshops and Thai boxing has also been delivered as part of the VRP in Merseyside combatting a reduction in knife crime on our communities. We are pleased to be working in partner-ship with 2 Brothers Gym http://2brothersmuaythai.com for this project.
Latest Impact Report
Our Impact Report was also published in January that showcases the impact HYPE is having on local communities and the social value attached to our delivery.
