Seniors get Suited and Booted!!
On Tuesday 18th December the Youth Club team hosted a special WYC awards evening. This was held at the Peace Centre for members of our Open Access group.
Members of our staff team had chosen various different categories, before voting on who they thought deserved the award. The categories included: ‘Most Competitive”, “Biggest Comedian”, “Console Kid” and lots more!
Special guests for the evening were Tongan Forwards Sitaleki Akauola and Ben Murdoch-Masila from Warrington Wolves. They presented all of the winners with a special laminated certificate before staying behind to sign autographs and have photos taken with the young people.
They were later given a guided tour of the club by our members and even took part in some basketball, badminton and pool against the young people! One of the special awards that was given out was the annual WYC Pool League which is a youth club tradition and has been running for over 10 years.
The Rea Muir award (in memory of a former senior member) was awarded to a young person with a minor disability who was a regular at the club, This was presented by Rea’s mum and dad and her boyfriend. There was also a category for our ‘Young Volunteer of the Year’, recognising the amazing contribution that they give to us and all of the young people.
Finally, there was a special presentation to staff member Serena who has worked with the organisation for over 2 and a half years and is leaving us for pastures new. This was presented by a young person who also read out an emotional tribute and presented Serena with a framed copy of her speech.
