Benbradagh Community Support, Dungiven

Based in an area ranked in the top 20% most deprived, Benbradagh Community Support planned to deliver a summer scheme during the time young people are away from school – and when they can suffer from absence of a normal routine.  BCS applied for funding to help cover professional facilitator costs and equipment to encourage physical activity and improve mental health and wellbeing for over 100 members.  The Committee was therefore content to award a grant of £1,500 obo The Drapers’ Company, and hoped that membership and enthusiasm would increase during the summer time – as suggested in the application.
