Parson Drove Youth Club members earn Kids Are Alright Challenge 2011 nomination
FIVE members of the Parson Drove Youth Club have been nominated for the Kids Are Alright Challenge 2011 after they held a special meal for people in their community.
Josephine Chilton, 13, Peter Chilton, 11, Grainne Maxwell, 13, and senior members Kelsey Hancock, 17, and Leanne Tompkins, 16, thanked members of the community who had supported them with fundraising by planning, preparing and cooking the meal.
The gesture has seen the ‘Off-Street’ youth club become our first nominee for February.
Laura Burgess, lead youth worker, said: “The young people put a lot of time and hard work into this project and it was a fantastic way to show their appreciation for the community which they live in.”
Amongst the guests at the meal were representatives from the John Bends Society, Parson Drove Parish Council and Councillor Jonathan Farmer, the Deputy Mayor.
