The Big Picture

With the deadline to The Big Picture record breaking attempt nearing Coventry Boys Club Manager Lisa Campbell submitted some photos of the fun that goes on there. We find out the story behind the pictures.
Lisa is supported by a small army of volunteers who are responsible for the day- to- day running of the club, she says
"It's open every night of the week for a whole variety of activities, games like pool or even a space for bands to practice. We also run activities away from the club, like canoeing."

"Despite what the name would suggest the Coventry Boys' Club is not a single sex organisation, and increasingly girls join us too. It was founded back in the 1930s when the Coventry branch of Toc H started the Red Lane Boys' Club at the Red Lane School."
"The club has been destroyed by fire on two separate occasions, once in the Blitz on Coventry in 1940 and more recently by an arson attack in 1990. Each time the club has risen from the ashes and each time we think it's become better than before!"
