Brent kids get £26k from Capital charity

Capital FM’s charity, Help a Capital Child, has awarded £26,000 to a variety of projects and organisations, for children and young people across the Brent area.

The 12 projects receiving funding include a new accessible playhouse at Peppermint Heights, theatre workshops on a Neasden estate, steel pan sessions for young people in Stonebridge, and wheelchair sport activities in special needs schools across the borough.

‘Help a Capital Child’ awards grants twice a year, and in the latest round of funding, a total of £262,046 has been awarded to 119 voluntary groups, benefiting over 13,000 of the Capital’s less advantaged and most vulnerable children and young people.

Global’s Director of Charities & Communities, Emma Bradley, said: “We are delighted to make these grants from ‘Help a Capital Child’ to a range of deserving projects, across the Brent area and beyond. Each of the chosen projects will really benefit from the extra funding and it’s fantastic to see our listeners’ kind donations make such a big difference to children across the capital.”
