From our Co-ordinator: This year it has been wonderful to watch CYC grow in confidence and skill. A year ago, this was a very different organisation and I felt that it was necessary to make sure our hardworking Youth Councillors stopped for a second to realise what they've managed to achieve. So I nominated them for two awards, and guess what: TWO FOR TWO!
Youth Week Youth Group Award: Awarded to only five groups nationally, this really is a governmental seal of approval for CYC. It also looks very nice on our filing cabinet!
VolCan Volunteer Recognition Award: Of the twenty five recipients region-wide, CYC were the youngest and its wonderful to think that they're not far off 1000 volunteer hours only 6 months into the year!
We've been assisted in our cause over the last few months by a new Youth Councillor. Sofie Hampton has joined the ranks of CYC as an Executive Committee member after Alison Faulls sadly moved on to other projects at university. But we're happy really, because LOOK how busy she's been since joining us!
