Britney Senning spoke to Wimbledon media about how Providence house helped her. “During lockdown Providence house helped me a lot whilst I was going through a very hard time. What I enjoy about providence house is the support and like just the togetherness of everything there. You can just relate with other people in the eve club and you can get on with a lot of people there.”
“The Wimbledon foundation gave us emergency COVID support so that we could run all of our summer activities last year. Taking young people away doing trips, doing creative arts projects through the summer which was just a real relief to have. When providence house got nominated for the Wimbledon coin toss it was such a shock but also real excitement it’s such an amazing privilege to be able to nominate a young person to be involved it’s such a prestigious event.”
Senning added: “When I heard I had been chosen for the coin toss, I was very shocked and overwhelmed because it’s such a big opportunity. The thing I’m looking most forward to is seeing the players play live. I am hoping to see Coco Gauff in the finals because she was around my age when she beat Venus Williams.”
