GRAND OPENING OF PORCH PROJECT’S NEW PREMISES
The evening kicked off with a short speech by James Buckle, Chair of the Trustees, who thanked the many people who have helped the Porch Project over the years, particularly mentioning Babergh District Council and the Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore. He also talked about the phenomenal support from local businesses, charitable trusts and private individuals.
After the official opening, kindly performed by Clare, Countess of Euston, Ben Day, Lead Youth Worker then gave a short introduction to one of the current learning programmes, Venture.
Venture has been a huge success in its pilot year. 30 young people took part in the programme. Many of them had little experience in the outdoors and they showed great resilience and perseverance, learning a host of new skills and gaining in confidence and independence. They were all presented with a certificate by Clare, Countess of Euston.
Ben finished the presentation by saying “Venture 2018 will run for twice the length and have two overnight camps. We have capacity for more people to join the programme and we aim to further expand the skill set and teamwork elements that the pilot programme has instilled”.
