Councillor Rook will be supporting and raising money for two main charities...
"Kidderminster & District Youth Trust was founded in 1966 by Kidderminster Mayor Charles Talbot MBE. The initial aim of the trust was to raise funds to buy land and construct a purpose built Youth Club in Kidderminster through which young people could access structured activities that could help them develop into adulthood positively. In 1970 after much hard work, and lots of local support, Kidderminster Youth House was built. Young people from the local area were involved in the construction and the design of the building. Kidderminster & District Youth Trust delivered youth clubs, a cafe, hairdressers, sports clubs and other activities from the Youth House until 1979 when Worcestershire County Council leased Kidderminster Youth House to deliver Careers, Youth Work and other important services to young people, this arrangement remained in place until 2012."
H.E.L.P. is a community group in the town that provides a night kitchen, help centre and an array of support services for the homeless. The charity provides those in need with hot food, warm clothing, as well as personal support with housing, budgeting, medical appointments.
