The area’s newest hotel, Village Hotel Club Bristol, has appointed youth club charity Young Bristol as its official charity partner for 2019.

The partnership will see the hotel donate 1,000 hours of employee time throughout the year to support the charity’s campaigns through fundraising and assisting with the charity’s numerous activities for young people in the city.

The Young Bristol charity partnership is part of the hotel chain’s new volunteering initiative, Village Green.

Launched in September 2018, the Village Green initiative is a national commitment being made by Village Hotel Clubs across the country to become a welcoming community hub, with the chain offering to donate 30,000 hours to local projects across their 30 hotel sites each year.

The team at Village Hotel Club Bristol will assist with the charity’s youth clubs and help run activities including climbing, abseiling, archery, bushcraft, caving and orienteering, as well as running courses held at Young Bristol’s water-based activity centre at Pooles Wharf on Bristol’s harbourside.

In addition to the volunteered time, the charity will be able to use the hotel’s high-tech facilities, including the state-of-the-art gym, swimming pool, event suite and business club, V Works. Using the hotel’s extensive meeting spaces, hotel staff will host talks and workshops regarding careers in the hospitality industry to inspire young people.

Young Bristol’s youth clubs have been a prominent and often life-changing place for thousands of children in Bristol since 1928. Generations have been helped by the charity, which has 15 clubs around the city. The charity provides a city-wide programme of activities and training schemes, supporting over 7,000 young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
