Funding crisis is threatening Ravenscliffe play project
A lack of funds is putting a popular children’s project at risk of closure.
More than 250 youngsters aged between eight and 13 have enjoyed Wild Adventures over the past four years, but financial constraints mean it could all come to an end by March.
Manager Matthew Pratt, who is a senior play worker with Ravenscliffe Community Association, said the loss of the project, which also empowers older youngsters to take control of the scheme by becoming volunteers, would be disastrous for the community.
He said: “There’s nothing like us in this area that is so focused and organised for young people by young people.”
Now he is appealing for more funds and sponsors to help the project survive and continue to help the young people in Bradford East.
