2012 GMYN Youth Volunteering Celebration Event

Young volunteers celebrated in style at  GMYN’s Youth Volunteering Celebration Event on Saturday 31st March at the Mechanics Institute, Manchester City Centre.

The event was opened by the Lord Mayor of Manchester and was organised to celebrate the positive contribution young volunteers had made in the city over the past twelve months. The night consisted of award presentations that were handed out by Tony Lloyd MP and entertainment by young performers including Manchester youth dancing troupe Universal Connection, Ukulele player Francesca Davies (pictured with the Lord Mayor) singing and keyboard playing by Natasha Carter and a French Horn performance by Oliver Waite.

In a year where Manchester has seen young people struggle with a reduction in provision and opportunities, city centre riots that affected the image of young people generally and a huge rise in youth unemployment, this event was a great way to focus on the positive work achieved by young people instead. GMYN and guests really enjoyed celebrated the young volunteers’ tremendous contribution to the Manchester Community.

GMYN’s Managing Director, Alex Fairweather said “it was fantastic that we had this opportunity to showcase the huge contribution young volunteers in Manchester have made over the past twelve months. We are very proud of our involvement with youth volunteering and we will continue to promote the positive changes young people make to their local and wider community”
