Ellesmere Youth Project (EYP) ran a 3-week summer programme in August, with over 30 young people. Activities included our now regular bike ride in Derwent Valley, a sunny trip to Millhouses Park and cooking, art & games at the Cornerstone Building.
This year, 11 young people also achieved their Level 1 ‘Paddle Power’ canoeing certificates, after 2 days of canoeing activity. We are hoping to develop this project – in partnership with the Linley Educational Trust – with a smaller group of young people, working up to a wilderness canoeing expedition to Scotland.
This should be a fantastic opportunity for young people to grow their skills in planning, team work and fundraising, while having a brilliant experience along the way! If you would be able to support this group with fundraising or planning, we’d love to hear from you.
EYP’s AGM is on Wednesday 6th October, 5.30pm at St Peter’s Church, Lyons Road. Come along if you’d like to find out more! Or call us on 07886 777 068.
