Investing in Volunteers
We are delighted to have been awarded, once again, an Investing in Volunteers Award! This award runs from October 2014 – October 2017. Our volunteers play an extremely important part in the running of our projects and we really couldn’t run without them! We would like to take this opportunity to once again give them a big thank you.

Red Nose Day is back
Red Nose Day is back on Friday 13th March 2015 and this year young people are being given the opportunity to do good in their neighbourhood by becoming Red Nose Day social entrepreneurs.
Comic Relief, in partnership with Spirit and UnLtd, is offering youth groups the chance to set up their very own Red Nose Day social enterprises. It’s a fantastic opportunity for your young people to combine learning business skills with raising money and helping others.
All your group needs to do is come up with an idea that could help your local area and then run it as a Red Nose Day fundraising event. It could be a talent show, gardening services or computer lessons for older people - anything that’s going to make your community smile.
If your idea is a success, then your intrepid social entrepreneurs can apply for a £500 award from UnLtd to carry on the good work.
Catherine Harrison, Senior Youth Engagement Officer at Comic Relief says “We are really excited about this new partnership with Spirit of 2012 and UnLtd. Becoming a Red Nose Day social entrepreneur is a brilliant opportunity for young people to develop their leadership and communication skills whilst bringing the local community together.”
