Invest in Bristol’s young people
We’re launching our most ambitious campaign to run our unique development programme for 300 young people from disadvantaged areas of inner city Bristol and change lives.
Gala Dinner – the Bristol way
Join us at the City Hall, find out about Babbasa’s unique approach to youth empowerment and discover the personal stories behind our young people.
You will be greeted with a drinks reception, before enjoying a delectable two course meal created by the culinary art masters, Parsnip Mash with all the ingredients sourced within a 50mile radius of Bristol.
We will have halal, vegetarian and gluten free options - we'll confirm the full menu shortly. We will also have a fundraising auction - further details will be announced soon.
This will be a special event where you will experience our young people’s talent first hand, hear personal stories and be taken on a journey with our keynote speakers and Bristol’s Poet Laureate Miles Chambers.
Why is this important for Bristol?
27% of all children and young people in Bristol are known to be living in poverty and deprivation.
We need to unlock the potential of every young person if our local and national economy is to grow and cope with global challenges and competition
