Tees Valley Rural Community Council (TVRCC) and Youth Focus: North East are delivering a Wellbeing Challenge with local Stillington young people to plan a Christmas event for an existing group of older people who meet every Wednesday as part of the Tea and Tonic project supported by TVRCC.

The young people are making cards, and presents, etc for older people who have been identified as lonely. This Wellbeing Challenge will take place on Wednesday 21 December in Stillington Village Hall.

Wellbeing Challenges follow a simple process that involves building teamwork and communication skills, planning a project idea, and following it through to completion with support from Youth Focus: North East staff.

For more information about this Wellbeing Challenge please contact Laura Bush.
