Kirsty Day, Media Cubs co-founder, said: “We’re really proud to be able to run a diverse set of activities that support young people to grow in confidence and increase their skill set and understand that their views and opinions matter.
“It is also important to us to work with young people to increase their aspirations, by giving them an understanding that they can grow up to be anything they want to be by having a taste of what a newsroom and TV studio entails, where previously it may have felt out of their reach.
“We believe that children from all backgrounds have a place in the newsroom and should feel confident that their views matter and voices will be heard.”
With thanks to this year’s partners, Manchester City Council, Manchester Libraries, Wigan Council, Wigan Minis, Wigan Athletic, Computer Xplorers, Sale Sharks, Rees Sports, Premier Education, Lancashire Cricket Club, LifeCentre Salford, Smart Body Sports, Northern Heart and Soul CIC, and Fit 2 Play.
