Street Factory gets PCH staff in the dancing spirit
Toby Gorniak from Street Factory CIC visited the PCH shop in Frankfort gate on Friday morning to get our staff out of their seats and dancing!
We have donated £500 to Street Factory to help with their vision of opening a community venue where everyone can feel physically, mentally and spiritually safe – and free to express, respect and learn together.
To celebrate the opening of their Crowdfunder page, Toby G visited us to get our staff involved with some funky dance moves. Toby tells us more about the project: "2017 is an exceptional year for Street Factory CIC. Set within the former brewery on Sawrey Street, we will be opening our new community hub and academy style facility for NEETS (a young person Not in Education, Employment or Training).
"We are working towards our new venue being recognised globally and already have strong links with America; and advocates such as Simon Cowell who gave us an award 4 years ago "Out Standing Community Contribution" & actively supported our vision...
"The new home and platform for Street Factory will require both financial and non-financial support. We want to thank PCH for their contribution as they have been big supporters of ours since the beginning.
"At Street Factory we have spent 10 years connecting audiences, young people, artists and practitioners around Plymouth. We try to create a springboard that empowers and enables our young people to be better connected to their values and see their potential whilst understanding the positive impact they can have within their community.
"We do this through the 10 elements of Hip Hop, through genuine love and a true trust that every young person has a voice and a sound that is worth listening to and amplifying. Year on year Street Factory CIC will continue to evolve, grown and organically shift to ensure it is fit fir purpose and continues to develop and deliver our objectives.
"The key driving force will always be the benefits and outcomes for the young people who need us the most and the amazing legacy and programmes that we will continue to produce to create change."
John Clark, Chief Executive said: "We are really pleased to support such a fantastic cause that does so much good work around Plymouth with young people. We think it's important to help and support future generations and encourage them to become active members of their communities. We do this by working with people like Street Factory to build valuable and effective partnership to encourage thriving communities."
