June was a month of fundraising for all the youths involved in the project. G.W.N.N raised funds by doing hair braiding, nail art, a treasure hunt and a ‘Lucky Key’ activity at the Grey Lodge Summer Fete and T-Night and 1 Group participated in Fancy Dress Sponsored Walks across the Tay Road Bridge. All money raised will go towards youth group activities. Well done to everybody for your commitment, hard work and effort.
In other news…G.W.N.N will be heading to Italy on July 22nd for the second part of our ‘Youth Volunteering – Into Action’ Exchange Project, T-Night enjoyed a day trip to Blair Drummond Safari Park and 1 Group spent a day in St Andrews together.
The two boys (Ayman and Ryan) who participated in the Tall Ships Challenge arrived home on Sunday. They spent a week learning how to sail and race Challenger Yachts in the Channel Islands. Ryan summed up his experience as follows…’The Tall Ships Challenge was simply an eye opener for myself. It was a great adventure and I enjoyed it. I’ve now met a few new people and we are staying in contact. I would recommend Tall Ships Challenge to anyone and I think I’ll try again next year!!’
