Promotional Video

“Our pupils absolutely loved their day out at Belvoir which included ‘Kwik-Cricket’, throwing and catching, archery, orienteering, birds of prey and meeting hounds. Our pupils come from inner-city Nottingham where the opportunity to participate in these enriching activities is very limited. The BCCT provided them with a highly structured, enriching and fun day out, where they had the opportunity to develop their cricket skills, participate in new sports and develop new skills and talents. Every adult from the BCCT was incredibly personable, helpful, fun and engaged with every pupil.”

Our Future

Following considerable work with Historic England and other agencies, we have secured unanimous planning permission to build a new indoor learning facility. It will transform our charity’s future making a real difference to young people’s lives as we look to the next decade and beyond.

It will truly be a facility to be proud of and one that we will be able to invite the community to share.

To make our plans a reality, we are now working hard to raise the necessary funds to begin building. If you’d like to help us please visit our ‘Get Involved‘ page  or if you require further information, please contact: Darren Bicknell – 07825 992406
