A new youth club for Holbeck

A new youth club has opened in Holbeck thanks to the Gambia Welfare Society.

Funded by Leeds City Council’s Inner South Community Committee, the club runs sessions every Friday and Saturday from 6-8pm at Oak House, Balm Walk, LS11 9PG.

The club is open for all young people in the area and will be running workshops on such topics as knife crime and first aid as well as leadership programmes. Free snacks and refreshments will be provided and there’s no need to book, just come along.

One of the organisers, Yanks Sawo, commented:

“It’s so important to give young people something positive to do in their spare time. We hope our club will help them make a positive contribution to the local community.”
