Volunteering with Lizard Outreach Trust
We could not carry out our work with Young people on The Lizard without the help of our team of dedicated Volunteers. They have been involved with the provision of a range of after-school clubs, Holiday activities and trips this year.Recent Trips & Outings
RECENT TRIPS & OUTINGS ENJOYED BY YOUNG PEOPLE AND OUR VOLUNTEERS
'The Base' Youth Club
In November 2009 a group of Local Volunteers worked on decorating and building projects to prepare the Landewednack Church Hall for use of the over 11's of the peninsular as a Youth Club. Volunteers sought donations from the local community to equip the club with Toys and Games and the Children were involved with our Youth Worker on the Opening day creating decorations and making the space their own. 'The Base' Youth club runs on the First two Fridays of every month and is proving to be a popular and much appreciated social opportunity for our young people from The Lizard village and surrounding area.
Families from Mannaccan, Mulllion and St Martin use the facility, and have been having lots of fun and making plans for the future. Volunteers and our Youth Worker run the sessions and are always extremely grateful for offers of help and support. They have recently benefited from visits from a local Dance & Drama teacher Hannah Johnson. Disco nights were a big hit, with equipment and music provided by Sue & Steve Glover. Marie King volunteered a great deal of her time to make Games nights great! Please get in touch if you want to be part of the Fun on Fridays!
