Houlton Fundraising

Why we need your help

Houlton are a family owned business which have been working in Hull and across Yorkshire for the last 138 years. We wanted to partner with a charity that has the same ethos regarding youth development on a local level. We became a Bronze partner in 2017 and decided to set up this page to try and raise additional funds.

HEY Children’s University has been established for the past 19 years and their mission is to raise the aspirations of young people in Hull and East Riding by building their confidence with unique learning experiences. Hull has the highest percentage of unemployment in the country and we want to change this by creating a better future for our children and a better future for Hull. There are currently over 16,000 children in our city living in poverty with 84% of these children coming from out of work households. These children may not have access to the opportunities that other children receive and many of these children have never left Hull, some having never even ventured into the city Centre. HCU believes that ALL children should get to see beyond the end of their street and experience the world around them.

The Charity does this by providing learning experiences for children who may otherwise never get a chance to take part in them. As an inclusive organization,  it takes full classes of children on the experiences.  Whether it is a trip to London to have a sleepover under the dinosaurs in the Natural History Museum, or if it is visiting a local business to learn about that industry, the aim is that all of the children leave these experiences happy, excited and with new aspirations that they will hopefully carry with them into adulthood.
