We had a fantastic October half-term running several action packed projects for local young people. The half-term video is coming soon so keep an eye on our facebook and twitter pages..
Making Good is a project we run every half term for young people aged 11-17.
The project involves engaging local young people in volunteering work parties, such as gardening for local residents or painting
community spaces, for 2 days. After 2 days hard work, the
group are then rewarded with a trip which is chosen by the young people.
Last week, our young people spent 2 days clearing garden areas and tidying up the small holding at Four Gables in Ashtead, which included visiting the pigs and the chickens. It was great fun and the young people got stuck in!
The reward trip this year was a day out at London Dungeons, which was great fun for all the young people as some had never been to London, and none had been to the Dungeons before. Well done guys!
BLAZE, our project for boys aged 11-14, has recently re-launched after a 5 year break, thanks to funding support from High Sheriff Youth Awards and Leatherhead Rotary Club. BLAZE offers regular boys night and trips for local young males. This was our first trip for the new BLAZE, and the lads enjoyed a fantastic day out at London Zoo.
All in all a fantastic half-term week helping young people enjoy positive activities!
