EMR Bradford awards donation to The Valley Project

The Valley Project, which has supported the local community since 2018, offers a safe outdoor space for young people to develop social skills, emotional confidence and problem solving skills, and enjoy nature. Young people are given the tools they need to enjoy the outdoors, escape day-to-day life, and develop relationships with their peers.

EMR, having previously supported The Valley Project in 2020, offered an additional donation which will allow young people to access the charity’s services for a year, covering the cost of equipment, food and drink.

The donation has been given as part of EMR’s Young Futures Reimagined programme, which was developed to support the communities in which the business operates. By partnering with local charities, EMR aims to enable young people to access opportunities they may not otherwise have, ultimately helping them to build a brighter future.

Krystal Pedroso, Commercial Manager at EMR Bradford said:

“Since 2020 we have been proud to support The Valley Project and invaluable service they offer to the local community. Our Young Futures Reimagined programme was designed to support young people who face challenges outside of their control and enable them to build a brighter future. The Valley Project plays a pivotal role in helping young people achieve this.

“The safe space the Valley Project provides, enables young people to thrive, build their confidence, and give them vital life skills. We look forward to continue working with the charity.”

Laura Bowen, The Valley Project, added:

"The Valley Project would like to thank EMR for this generous donation and for their continued support. It makes a huge difference to our organisation and the children we work with, especially after such a challenging year."
