Local charity Drive for Grimsby works to ensure that underprivileged children from the area can take part in the North East Lincolnshire Duke of Edinburgh Award. The Award gives children the opportunity to develop skills for life and work, fulfil their potential and have a brighter future through a combination of volunteering, learning a skill and completing an expedition they plan themselves. Drive for Grimsby provides bursaries and support to children and young people to enable them to take part in the Award, which they might not otherwise be able to afford.

Young’s Seafood Limited and Cleethorpes Events are this week donating £300 to Drive for Grimsby, to give underprivileged children from the local area the chance to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. Pete Ward, CEO of Young’s Seafood Limited and Cheryl Atkin, Personal Assistant to the Chief Executive are presenting the donation to X, at Ross House on X.

Pete Ward CEO of Young’s Seafood Limited said; “As part of our Fish for Life Corporate Responsibility Programme, we’re committed to playing a positive role in the communities where we are based and I’m delighted to be supporting Drive for Grimsby and all of the fantastic work they do for young people in the local area.”

Tony Jex Chairman of Drive for Grimsby commented; “Drive for Grimsby is determined to support all young people in North East Linconshire who wish to take part in the internationally recognised Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. This generous donation by Young’s Seafood Limited will help towards meeting that key objective.”
