Ellesmere Youth Project’s (EYP) Annual General Meeting was held on Thursday 26th November.

As well as the usual business, the opportunity was taken to recognise the volunteers for their outstanding work. Chris Bristow, EYP chairperson, presented the volunteers with certificates and gift vouchers for their extensive and valuable work. He spoke highly of their efforts, saying: “Our inspiration comes from the understanding and commitment to continue our work in one form or another regardless of the financial situation. Currently, our work is largely supported by a pool of volunteers.”

Board members discussed with the volunteers why they chose to get involved and how volunteering fitted in with their everyday lives. Young people said they took part to develop their skills, to help make a difference and to have fun. They also enjoyed meeting and exchanging ideas with others who help out with different EYP activities.

EYP thanks all its volunteers for the hard work and dedication they have shown throughout the projects and the understanding and adaptability they demonstrate when working with groups.

EYP runs projects throughout the week, if you would like more information please contact us on 0114 213 3120.
