Half Term Youth Adventures

 

During the Easter half term we put on lots of activities for local young people, who were ecstatic to learn new skills such as how to create tie dye t-shirts. Using cool new designs and colours, the young people each made their own tie dye creations and were thrilled to see how their t-shirts turned out.

In their time in the kitchen, the young people baked, decorated, and feasted on batches of chocolatey brownies and healthy banana bread. They expanded their baking skills by incorporating vegan friendly ingredients into one of the brownie recipes, which was a first for most, who had never tried a vegan brownie before! They were surprised at their delicious taste.

Our youth activities continued outside of The Winch building, with a residential trip and a football tournament. Fifteen young people from across all our secondary years programmes represented their groups at a 2 day trip to Brighton where they took the opportunity to help design how they and their peers would like to be involved in the work of The Winch. Their ideas ranged from small scale fundraising ideas to international volunteering exchanges. These will form the basis of a new session on a Monday evening where all secondary staff will be working up their ideas with them in order to take them forward. 

Eight young men aged 11-19 took part in a pan London football tournament at Coram's Fields, a positive activity mixing young men from all over the capital giving time to show their football talents as well as to socialise and have fun in between games. We are very proud to say that The Winch team reached the semi finals against some very tough competition!
