2TSG CIC also known as 2tshirtgang, run by Anthony, Trinity and Cleo, is a sports specific training academy based in Bradford.

The trio wanted to give the youth in their community access to professional training.

They support young clients with aspirations to go on to be a professional in sports, educate them in health and fitness and endeavour to keep them off the streets.

2tshirtgang recognised that health was poor in the community due to lifestyle, lack of education and limited access. Wanting to change this, 2tshirtgang was born.

Anthony and best friend Trinity have been training together for a few years. In the past youths and people in the community started to ask if they could train with them. However, their workouts were intense and people began to learn that when they trained with them they needed to bring 2 TSHIRTS to change into, halfway through the workout. This stuck with them as a nickname, and organically grew into the business name!

Services offered include:
Personal training
Youth functional training
Athlete training
Community functional training

509 Arts

Based in Bradford, 509 Arts has worked for over 25 years as both a production and consultancy company. Our creative work is inspired by people and place. We thrive on open conversations. We talk, we listen, we share. And then we make things happen. We are committed to the people we work with, to creating outstanding projects and sustainable ways of making them happen.

Since 2011, 509 Arts has often used testimony to shape creative thinking about subjects that resonate: My Last Car (‘car love meets climate change’) for the Cultural Olympiad, Bike Story (‘life on two wheels’) for the Tour de France Grand Depart (11 outdoor locations, audiences of 2,500) and Landlines & Watermarks (‘a landscape and people shaped by water’) in response to the Calderdale floods. Calderland, the folk opera at the heart of the project, won a 2018 Royal Philharmonic Society Award. The Batley Variations told the inside story of a Northern town through music and dance. Our latest projects include Meal One, an immersive production for families and Hardcastle Ways, an arts and heritage project with the National Trust at Hardcastle Crags.

A Bit of a Break

A Bit of a Break finds availabile weeks in self-catering holiday properties. The holidays are gifted by the property owners, to people in West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and Liverpool who are living with a terminal illness, so they can enjoy some time away in beautiful places.

If you are someone living with a terminal illness who would like to be referred for a holiday, please ask one of the specific referral partners to make a referral for you (you can't do this yourself). In West Yorkshire, organisations that can make referrals includes Marie Curie Hospice in Bradford, Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope, The Carers Resource Bradford, Shipley, and Skipton offices, Bingley Medical Practice and Community Nurse Specialists in Cancer, Respiratory Disease, Neurological Disease and Heart Failure at Airedale.

ACORN The Union

ACORN is a mass membership organisation and network of low-income people organising for a fairer deal for our communities left behind by companies, councils and parliament. We know that the economic and political set up in this country isn’t working for us, so we set up ACORN to win the power and representation we are entitled to.

The idea is simple – a national community organisation along the lines of a trade union; organising our communities and fighting for a better quality of life. What began with a few local residents trying to tackle slum housing in their neighbourhood has quickly developed into a national organisation with thousands of members and branches across the country.

Action Point

Action Point is the new name for Keighley & District Volunteer Centre.

We deliver a range of direct support services to meet the needs of our local community:

Projects and services for: adults with learning disabilities, older people, people experiencing mental health difficulties, disadvantaged/ marginalised groups.

Addingham Allotments And Garden Association

Allotments & Gardens Association – Growing Together in Addingham

Below is the formal Constitution of Addingham Allotments & Gardens Association, with records showing its formation back in 1973 when a small group of villagers wanted to start a ‘Gardeners Club’ to promote their interest in gardening by sharing tips and ideas as well as promoting the therapeutic benefits of gardening.

Today, Addingham has around 135 allotments spread over 4 sites around the village plus approximately 1,500 houses all having differing sized gardens or maybe just the odd planter or pot!

Challenges from the impact of climate change, the quest for a more sustainable approach to protect our environment and reduce food miles makes the combined effort of all of us ever more relevant. Add the ever-changing economic situation and it makes growing more fruit and vegetables an obvious and rewarding pastime.
