Thanks to Churchills Live, Blind Love and the generosity of our talented and awesome local artists we are holding a charity gig to raise funds for the build of the Christchurch Youth Hub. You may have seen Dr Sue Bagshaw’s plans for a Youth Hub (to help vulnerable and at risk youth in our city) on the “Christchurch Dilemmas” series. This will be an awesome night of entertainment and tickets are only $10 from the venue with all proceeds going to the build of the Youth Hub.

*********************************************************
Dr Bagshaw is the chairperson of the Korowai Youth Well-Being Trust and currently runs the 298 Youth Health service on Bealey Ave. She saw a desperate need in Christchurch for a project such as the Youth Hub when she encountered unprecedented numbers of homeless and at risk youth coming to the health service. Many have complex issues and little support to deal with them. Food that is currently donated and available to many of these youth they can’t even eat because they have no where to cook it! They are living in absolutely appalling conditions and have little chance to escape from these challenging conditions any time soon. Mental health services are currently incredibly poorly funded in Canterbury and the Youth Hub will provide such services to Youth.
