Aspire to Believe
Redcar & Cleveland
One summer afternoon in June of this year a group of 12 to 16 year olds sat and pondered how they’re new rural youth club could help the older residents with in their tiny village of Moorsholm on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors. The young people were very much aware how loneliness and isolation was an issue for them all and they wanted to become more included within village life. Now, inspired through all that had been achieved within the past 6 months within their youth club they were keen to create an event where they could work together as a team of younger and older residents on a fun activity.
It was at this point that one teenager suggested a come dine with me event for those of the older generation in the village. But this idea would not just tackle loneliness nor would it be just the young people delivering it but a team effort where each young person would partner with a elderly resident to create an exciting menu that would allow new skills to be learnt.
What better way to learn how things were done, to share stories, build new relationships, inspire great teamwork and enhance new founded friendships. But, where to start? After discussions with residents and sourcing a venue, there is only one thing left to be able to carry out their wonderful idea. To source some funding to be able to buy their ingredients and equipment! Please could you help them?
