Why did we decide on this project?
The ‘Christmas fundraiser’ was a brilliant festive way to involve all aged members of the Hanham Youth Club, which is why we decided to take part in this project. When we became aware of HYC being in trouble with debt, we wanted to use all our power to help; HYC is very important to us all. With the encouragement from Aaron, Sophia and Paloma we came to an agreement that this project would be best suited for both helping out HYC and also completing our SAY project.
What did we do to plan the project?
We had to take into considerations that the ages would vary from 11-18 and therefor had to be age appropriate and fun for everyone…proving to be quite challenging. First of all we had to decide on the activities, food, drink and the extras, more importantly how much this would cost; we are not mathematics or expert event organisers but fortunately we had the support to point us in the right direction, thankfully!
After brainstorming ideas, we finally had a clear plan on what we wanted and what we didn’t, now we had to take it from the paper and make it reality- we needed all the luck we could get.
What did we want to achieve?
We were very enthusiastic about this project, and we wanted this to show in our success. This project was all about raising as much money as we could, which was what we wished to achieve most. We also wanted to please all guests that attended and make their night as enjoyable as possible- hopefully the inflatable bull did the trick.
How did we feel being involved in this project?
We were all incredibly proud that we had an opportunity to give back to the club in the duration of this project, and we were even more excited to see the turn out, but I’m not denying that we weren’t nervous, after all this was our first project.
We are extremely grateful for all the help and guidance that we received, and we are especially passionate about the overall project. Thank you.
