YMCA Bolton’s involvement with St Andrews Methodist Church is in its sixth year. Located on Tonge Moor Rd, it is attended by young people the wider Tonge Moor and Hall i’ th’ wood.
Sessions run 6.45pm until 8.15pm, Thursdays for ages 11-14 and Fridays for ages 6-11. The sessions are full of positive activities and fun, planned by the team of staff, volunteers and young people.
The young people take part in physically stimulating activities, including Floorball, Football, Dodgeball and Circle Games. These sorts of games, not only provide physical exercise for the young people, but help them build up relationships between participants. Young people also enjoy the Art and crafts, which is an important aspect of the sessions to inspire creativity and individuality within the young people.
Outside trips are organised throughout the year. For example last year our groups went to the theatre, the BSTC and even enjoyed roller-skating.
