Stagecoach Aldershot is proud to be supporting the Camberley Friday Night Project by offering free bus travel to the young people attending the weekly events.
The initiative was set up by the Surrey Heath Borough Council in partnership with the Eikon Charity to offer teens heavily discounted access to the Arena Leisure Centre and provide a variety of sporting activities for them to try out every Friday evening. As well as offering a chill out area, and a safe environment for young people to make new friends, they are encouraged to try different sporting activities and gain support from the onsite youth workers.
Stagecoach is supporting the initiative by allowing teens wanting to attend the activity evenings free bus travel on the Aldershot Gold Route 1 when they show their leisure centre membership card.
Stagecoach Operations Manager Martin McDougall, says ‘It’s great to be supporting the Camberley Friday Night Project, by getting the local young people interested in different sports. Here at Stagecoach we’re really passionate about supporting the community and initiatives such as these.’
Craig Alford, Community Development Assistant at Surrey Heath Borough Council said “As part of Surrey Heath Borough Councils ambition of making sport and physical activity accessible for all, providing heavily discounted activity alongside free travel is a fantastic opportunity for our young people.”
