It was also amazing to see so any inspirational women involved in the running and organising of this one off event. Sharing their knowledge and experiences and helping to provide positive role modelsĀ to the young people on the day.


We would like to say a massive thank you to all our volunteers who took part in our accredited Level 2 Sports Leaders Award! To gain their certificates and pass the course these young people volunteered their time within this local community project. With this work experience opportunity accomplished these young people will also be taking part in our free First Aid Workshop on the 18th of June in partnership with the YMCA. The help from our young volunteers is essential and we are really grateful for all of their time and support!
