Members of the Prince’s Trust Volunteers Programme recently kindly carried out a series of fundraising activities for the Wirral Autistic Society Children & Family Service during March 2014 as part of their 12 week Volunteer Programme. The group undertook various duties in the community; such as bag packing and litter picking to name but a few.
After consulting with Chloe Jones (Resource and Referral Co-ordinator) and Rick Myers (Fundraising Officer), it was decided that they would spend the money they had raised on some items that would encourage inclusions, socialisation and communication for the young people at the Rainbow Resource Centre that the Children and Family Service support.
The Prince’s Trust volunteers did a small presentation to two of our teenagers groups (the Befriending Service) that we support and gave a short talk about what the Princes Trust is, our young adults also gave a short talk about what the Befriending Service is. The Prince’s Trust Volunteers then donated some games for us including table tennis, giant Jenga, Twister and various other board games and the two organisations came together to play games.
The Princes Trust volunteers also catered for the event with some party food. A great night was had by all and we are obviously very grateful for their donations and look forward to working with the team on further projects.
