Harry presents a cheque to Tokko!
Luton-based charity TOKKO Youth Space; which supports vulnerable young people across the town to advance in life; were helped by a group of apprentices following a theft which left TOKKO’s young people without essential resources.
Upon hearing the news that TOKKO had essential equipment stolen VolkerFitzpatrick Kier Joint Venture Apprentices decided to take action and set to work mixing, baking and icing a selection of cakes and ‘treats”. The group of young apprentices aged between 17 and 20 cheered up their fellow workers by selling the homemade treats and raised over £200 which they donated to TOKKO towards replacing some of the equipment stolen used weekly to help reduce isolation and loneliness amongst young people.
Hazel Mellon – TOKKO Youth Space Business Manager said:
‘We are thrilled to receive such a kind donation from this group of young people. They are both a credit to themselves and VolkerFitzpatrick Kier Joint Venture. The donation will enable us to replace resources following the theft; making a difference to a range of vulnerable young people. In times when serious youth violence is impacting our town it is important to remember that most young people want to make a difference and support their local community.”
