The Tour of Infinite Possibility is a festival that takes place in June in the Yorkshire area. It encourages young people to get involved with music – they are encouraged to enter their bands and learn new instruments in the lead up to the festival and the most successful young bands will get to showcase their talents at the festival.

We donated £15,000 which will pay for new instruments and some other cost. They will be working in 12 areas of Yorkshire in the lead up to the festival and hope to work with over 360 young people.

The Charles Young Centre, is in the heart of the local community and has over 17,000 users per annum, and is used on a weekly basis by 31 different local groups at low cost.

The centre also offers a daily meals service to the local elderly. It has been opened since 1982 and is badly in need of a make over to bring up to a good standard with the type of activities that is provides. The Asda Foundation donated £21,000 which will cover the full cost of the revamp.

Harbour Place in Grimsby is a centre mainly used by the homeless and socially excluded, however with the new benefits reform they are finding their advice is needed by many more of the local community. They offer advice by CAB, credit union and also training to get people back in to work. They are planning to turn an unused shop next to their premises in to a training centre as well as some other rooms for one to one advice. The shortfall is £15,000 – which the Foundation will fund.

Laila Milly Foundation

The Laila Milly Foundation is a charity which was set up by a local couple who found there was not much support when their daughter was born with a rare neurological condition called Aicardi Syndrome. They started fundraising to open a centre in her memory – which will help provide respite for other parents and also play therapy. They managed to raise £100,000 to build the centre and the Asda Foundation will provide £19,096.85 to equip the sensory room.
