Christmas came early for local youth club, Bolton Lads & Girls Club (BLGC), as they were handed the keys to a brand-new Kia Carens by local car dealership, Bolton Kia.

Decorated in the Club’s colours, the brand-new set of wheels will be used by Mentoring Co-ordinators to visit individuals and families in Bolton and the surrounding area. The car will be utilised by Mentors to engage with young people on estates in the town and Talent Match coaches and help Outreach Workers transport young people to interviews and work placements.

The Bolton based dealership, have supported BLGC since 2015 and have generously continued their support throughout 2017. Now proud Bronze Patrons of the Club, Bolton Kia will be helping to ensure that the Club reaches more young people in its surrounding area as well as widening job prospects and opportunities.

After receiving the keys to the new Kia Carens, Karen Edwards, Chief Executive of Bolton Lads and Girls Club, said: “It’s incredibly kind of Bolton Kia to provide us with this car. It really will help make a difference to our Mentoring Co-ordinators, as they’ll be able to reach disadvantaged young people much more easily now. The dealership has been supporting us for a couple of years, and it’s great to know that they value all our hard work.”

With the Clubs ever growing services, the versatile 7-seater Kia Carens will play a pivotal role in the coming winter months as it helps make BLGC an accessible place for every Young Person in Bolton.
