Big Christmas celebration event
On Monday 17th December members of Parson Drove Youth Club along with staff and volunteers hosted their 'Big Christmas Celebration Event' at the youth club session. The event was the last session of youth club for the year and was an opportunity for the youth club to thank all the local community for their support over the last year and also to show off their achievements and their youth club.
A group of young people had been planning the event for several weeks and had considered everything from who to invite and what the invites would look like, to what activities to hold and the food. The young people worked together to produce a power point presentation with vidoe clips of themselves participating in interviews and activities at youth club.
The young people invited the local community members and were pleased to host the event for members of the local Parson Drove Parish Council and Locality team members along with new young people and the regular attendee's. The young people had also been working hard for weeks prior to the event making various items to sell including stunning christmas tree decorations.
On the evening the young people presented their work and also encouraged people to participate in arts and crafts, sports and other activities. There was also a small raffle held. The total amount raised on the evening was £58.65 and the proceeds will go towards the youth club members going on a trip in the Easter Holidays.
