The Young People’s Committee of NBYP have had a very proactive year and demonstrated great leadership and communication skills. Being a member gives young people an opportunity to have a voice and help to direct the work of the project. It also helps give young people a sense of purpose and self-belief, increased competency skills and knowledge.

In the last 12 months they have:

  • During the Easter holidays (20240 They organised a 75 seat  coach to South Shield's for  local families, supplying snacks and fair tickets.

  • Put together 50+ Christmas food hampers for local families.

  • Gave out 50+ warm fleece blankets in the winter to help during the energy crisis.

  • They organised a Community event at the local church hall where families could enjoy a free fun day. They organised inflatables, photo booth, face painter, side shows, food, name the bunny, candy floss and popcorn machines, arts and crafts.  130 people attended the event, a great way of bringing the community together.

  • They have helped to sort through the many bags of donations for our free give away days.

  • They came up with the ideas of making and selling nappy cakes to raise funds for the project. They can be made to order.

  • They organised a raffle with some great prizes to raise money to buy resources for the nappy cakes.
