Disadvantaged children living in west London are to benefit after Children in Need allocated money to three groups and organisations.
They will receive a total of £29,540 after the BBC charity announced the latest successful applications for funding.
The welcome windfalls will go to groups based in White City, Acton and Fulham .
A grant of nearly £9,845 has been awarded to the London Sports Trust to provide SAFE Camp - a school holiday sporting activities for young people around the White City Estate, which has suffered from crime and anti-social behaviour .
The project, which is delivered by Phoenix High School, works with over 100 local young people aged from eight and 15, helping tackle anti-social behaviour and improve aspirations. In addition to sports activities, the group will also run sessions around healthy eating, drama and arts and crafts.
A £10,000 grant will also go to the Centre for Armenian Information and Advice, based in Acton. It works with local young people from the Armenian community who live in deprivation or at risk of exclusion.
It will use the money to work with around 100 young people aged 11–17, offering a range of mentoring and advice, education, training and apprenticeships, youth club activities and day trips.
A final grant of £9,695 will go to Albert & Friends Instant Circus , based in Fulham, to teach circus skills and physical arts to young people living in inner-city areas.
Beginning later this year, it will run sessions in on the Edward Wood and Old Oak housing estates in Shepherd’s Bush and East Acton offering a range of activities for young people, including stilt-walking, juggling, unicycling, ball walking and tightrope.
It is hoped to benefit around 50 young people, helping develop creativity alongside physical and team-working skills, while also instilling a sense of community.
As a result of the new grants, BBC Children in Need now funds 10 projects in Hammersmith and Fulham with over £420,000 hard at work to benefit young lives in the area. Across Ealing the Charity supports eight projects to a total value of over £279,000.
Kerry Luker, regional head of London and the South East for BBC Children in Need added: “We’re delighted to award this grant to Albert & Friends Instant Circus, and know that it’ll make a real difference to local young lives.
"It’s a great example of one of our Small Grants in action too. These include anything up to £10,000 across one year and show how relatively small sums of money can have a huge impact.
"Be sure to visit the BBC Children in Need website if you work with disadvantaged young people and think your organisation could benefit from funding.”
