Church Charity up for Community Awards

Thursday October 10 2019


A church-based youth organisation in Glasgow has been nominated in two categories in the city’s Community Champion Awards.

St Paul’s Youth Forum is up for the north east Team Award, while its Bolt FM Zambia Young People project has been shortlisted for the Young Award.

The Youth Forum is an arm’s-length charity which grew out of the youth club at St Paul’s Church, Provanmill. Based in one of the most deprived areas of Scotland, it runs clubs for all ages, residential trips, a community growing and cooking project, and On_Bikes, which runs a bike library, bike recycling and maintenance classes.

It also runs Bolt FM, Scotland’s longest running youth-led radio station. Young people involved in the station visited Zambia in the summer, and are now fundraising for four projects they visited.

For the first time this year, the Evening Times Community Champion Awards include an element of public vote, with the groups receiving the most votes going to a judging panel. The winners will be announced on December 6.
