Staff managed to raise £80 during February for the Charlie Waller Memorial trust. We hoped to inspire those from our community to get out once a day and try to have a walk around their area to try and help their physical and mental health.
Although we weren't able to provide any sessions on the park this half term, we still made 30 Play Rangers packs perfect for families staying indoors during the lockdown. Jam packed with over 20 activities and challenges great for teams, pairs and young people playing on their own.
We included Fair Trade activities and board games because we knew that the half term would lead into Fairtrade Fortnight and we'd be unable to celebrate Hull being a Fairtrade City with the young people in the building. We also added Black History Month fact sorting cards that the youth workers made, as well as bird watching sheets and everything they'd need to complete the challenges.
The youth workers also filmed themselves doing the challenges and posted them during the half term so that the young people could feel like they were doing them at Network still.
For Children's Mental Health Week the young people have been working extremely hard for the last few weeks practicing their singing, dancing and other talents in order to show how they express themselves!
The theme this year was Express Yourself and we think they've done a fantastic job! We've loved watching them have fun and grow in confidence as they showed off their rhythm and artistic talents. From clay cats to self portraits to powerful duets, we're super proud to share the video of all their hard work.
