On Wednesday 21 December younger and older people from Stillington and nearby villages came together to celebrate Christmas. The young people who were recruited to the project through links with…
Youth Focus: North East and Tees Valley Rural Community Council (TVRCC) are working together on an intergenerational project. TVRCC have received a small pot of funding from Stillington Town Parish to plan and deliver a community intergenerational project.
We will be linking up with local young people from Stillington to help us plan for an old people’s Christmas themed event. Many of these older people have been identified as isolated and lonely, this Christmas event will be chance for young people to give something back to the older generation at a time of year when it is most needed.
The young people will co-plan activities such as raffles, entertainment and create decorations and gifts for the Christmas Event. We will be running a number of sessions to enable the young people to plan and create what they feel is best for the event which will be held in December 2016.
If you would like to get involved in the project or would like some more information, please contact Laura Bush on 07763826674 or [email protected].
