The SEND youth group wanted to celebrate their reopening after the restrictions due to COVID-19 and expanding to start another youth group in Brinsworth.
The group planned for a small summer fayre to be held within the grounds of the JADE Centre. The centre is where the group first came together and has continued to support Jo and the team. A small amount of activities were put on designed to entertain everyone. These included a small bouncy castle, a tombola with an array of prizes, cookies and cakes were being sold, as well as other items.
I offered my support to the Fayre in whatever guise the team required. I ended up with task of selling the raffle tickets.
The Event was attended by around 50 different people connected to the group, the local community and even the MP for Rother Valley, Alex Stafford.
The group raised £203 and raised the profile of their group in the local community.
Alex Stafford said; ‘It was great to meet everyone at the event, filled with fun activities for everyone to get involved with.’
