a brighter future with new futures...
New Futures was set up in 2010 by a group of local parents who wanted to make a positive impact in their community. Over the past few years we have supported our local Children's Centre by tapping into various pots of funding and contributing to the cost of trips and activities for families - such as day trips to Blackpool, the Lake District, Christmas Pantomimes and grottos.
Last year we organised Christmas lunches and tied it in with Save the Children Christmas Jumper Appeal raising over £100.00. We also arranged a Movie Matinee which again was really well attended.
We have helped to set-up and support a number of activities including a Dad's group, gardening group and a bicycle club. We have funded health and safety courses and cookery lessons at the Can Cook Studio.
More recently, we were successful in securing funding from the Big Lottery which enabled us to pay towards the Children Centre's tenth birthday celebrations in September last year.
