Astra's partnerships working together to help disadvantaged young people in Bristol
Last week, two of Bristol Bears Women players made a surprise visit to a half-term holiday workshop set up for disadvantaged children. The workshop, which is run by Unique Voice, provides free out of school creative sessions for Bristol’s most disadvantaged young people.
Row Marston and Anya Small, from Bristol Bears Women showed up during the final day of the 4-day workshop, providing delight and excitement all round! They took part in various games with the children before handing out the much-valued certificates.

The surprise visit was a result of Astra Security bringing together two of their partnerships to really make a difference. Bristol Bears Women have been supported by Astra for over 6 years and have a strong association. Whilst, Unique Voice, a Bristol based organisation set up to help change the lives of disadvantaged young people have been supported more recently through their Help 100 Club, which Astra provided support for earlier this year.
Dan Ford, from Unique Voice said ‘ Today’s been amazing, having Row and Anya here has been such a surprise to the children. The players are great role models and provide such inspiration to the children who are from some of the most deprived areas of the city.’ He went on to say ‘ It’s great that Astra Security has been able to use their partnerships in a creative way, making such a positive difference. I’d like to say a big thank you to them for making it happen, and a big thank you also to the Bristol Bears players.’
Paul Beet, Managing Director from Astra Security highlighted that supporting local communities is an important part of the Company ethos, and by bringing together the partnerships in this way makes perfect sense. It’s something that we should continue to do more of in the future.
