18 December My DofE volunteering: Campaigning for the youth in Hackney
Legacy Youth Zone is Officially Open
An exciting day on Saturday 7th September saw our charity partners, OnSideYouth Zone, open the doors of another London Youth Zone!
Croydon’s Legacy Youth Zone invited over 1,800 people to celebrate with them and to see what the incredible £6.5 million facility has to offer the Croydon community. Facilities available to young people include an indoor climbing wall, four-court sports hall, fully equipped gym, music room with a recording suite and so much more.
The inspiring impact that the Youth Zone is set to have was outlined by speaker Angela Chizea that shared her view on Legacy’s opening:
“As a young person that grew up and is still growing up in Croydon, Legacy Is more than somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to. Its more than a youth centre, or Youth Zone as we like to call it. Legacy is a home for not only me but all the young people that make up the Youth Zone as it is.”
Surely to follow on from the huge success of OnSide’s other Youth Zones such as Unitas Youth Zone and Future Youth Zone, we are excited to see Legacy help many young people. We are also extremely proud to support the charity’s achievement of their vision to ‘give all young people somewhere safe and inspiring to go in their leisure time’.
