The Hofn youth group have been awarded £350 towards the purchase of a new TV and digital TV viewing system. They have agreed to fundraise towards the cost of the TV licence.
12 teenagers from Westray and 5 from Papay (accompanied by 6 leaders) had a very enjoyable but exhausting trip to London with the Parish Kirk Youth Group. They spent six nights (20-26th October) staying in the Central London area of Kennington/North Lambeth. Alongside a number of more predictable tourist visits, the group
– Found out about a major new prison rehabilitation project
– Were shown around the Wimbledon Tennis Complex
– Sailed up the Thames in a WW2 amphibious landing craft
– Rocked to Queen at the “We Will Rock You” musical
– Spiralled upside-down at Thorpe Amusement park
– Attended a thrilling Fulham v Everton match at Craven Cottage
– And were guests of honour at a “Lambeth Scottish Ceilidh”
Westray Development Trust was one of a number of funders (including local fundraising efforts) who made this happen.
