WE ARE AWARD WINNERS!!
We received the East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Chairman's award in the Community section. We were nominated by Vicky Neilen for the work that we do with The Hangout. We were invited to a slap up meal at the spa for the award ceremony! How fancy! We were up against 200 other nominations in the category who were based around the whole of the East Riding. The final 3 were invited to the spa and we won!
Our amazing Jade has won Volunteer of the Year for Shopping Centre Community Awards! What a fantastic achievement! Go Jade!
The celebrations don't stop there! Jo Miles won the Community Local Hero Award! How awesome are we?!
We have numerous Junior Volunteers at our sessions, these volunteers are all in years 7 and up but are under 18. They receive a uniform and a job description. During sessions they help with all aspects of running the club from setting up to packing away. If you feel your child would benefit from becoming a junior volunteer please talk to us at any session.
Yet again we were fund raising all through last year including bag packs at Morrisons and Tesco, Old town summer festival, Flamborough festival, Sewerby Gala, Lions Gala, Bempton Gala, Tombola stalls in the Promenades Shopping Centre and a bumper year at the Old Town Dickensian Festival. These fund raising days are vital to the club to keep us going by paying rent and insurance. If you have anything you would like to donate to us to us on our stalls please contact us and we can collect or bring it along on a Friday evening.
