Join charity the Hubb Foundation for their breakfast event (oatcakes, of course!) on Thursday 30th January at Port Vale Football Club’s Vale Park from 8am – 10am.
It’s a chance for you to get to know the charity, their journey and their mission. Come along and hear about the work they’re doing in Stoke-on-Trent to support children, young people, and their families.
The Hubb offers free holiday programmes within schools, churches and community centres across the city. Underpinned by providing a nutritious meal, their sessions provide a safe space to socialise, where children can participate in a variety of activities that encourage them to build skills and confidence, but most importantly create happy, positive memories.
With Stoke-on-Trent being one of 12 social mobility cold spots in England, 53% of the total population in the city live in areas classified amongst the top 20% most deprived in England and child poverty levels across the city remain at 42.8%, which is significantly higher than the national average of 16.8%. This means that there are 12,400 children likely to be living in poverty in Stoke-on-Trent, making the Hubb’s support so important.
Since launch, their programme has provided in excess of 22,000 meals to 16,000 attendees at over 500 events, and they are enormously grateful to their volunteers and supporters for making this possible.
The Hubb have only just begun to scratch the surface to help address some of the social issues families in the city are faced with. Moving forward they are hopeful that with your help they can support them even further.
To attend the breakfast event, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org with names and number of attendees by 5pm on Monday 27th January.
