Active Fusion is delighted to announce that it is a Weston Charity Award winner.
Competition to receive a year of tailored strategic planning support from business leaders and a core grant of £6,500 was fierce, with 172 charities entering from across the North of England, the Midlands and Wales.
Doncaster based charity Active Fusion, who work to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of young people across the region, was one of 21 charities to win and the only charity winner from Yorkshire.
Between them, the 21 winners provide services to 70,000 people and provide support to people living with a range of issues such as domestic abuse, homelessness and disability.
Director of Active Fusion, Lindsy James, said: “We are delighted to be selected as a winner of the Weston Charity Awards. It’s a privilege to be selected alongside the other fantastic charity winners.
“Active Fusion works in schools and within communities across Doncaster and surrounding areas to give children and young people a greater opportunity to be physically active and through this, help them to develop other skills such as confidence, resilience and leadership.
“The input we’re to receive from The Garfield Weston Foundation will only strengthen our mission to help more young people to be the best they can be.”
