Efforts to be rewarded

TWO organisations are set to receive recognition in the High Sheriff’s Awards for 2010/11.

Young People March is to receive £440 towards additional sports equipment to run alongside the current equipment, mats for circuits and First Aid training, a trolley to store the mats safely, plus some assorted balls for various sporting activities.

This project provides a safe and positive environment in which all young people can access the opportunities to enhance and facilitate their transition from childhood to adulthood.

It offers guidance to over 900 members, that will enrich and structure their education, training, employment needs and social lives so that they are better equipped to take an active role in all aspects of their community.

A young person from YPM is also set to receive a certificate of recognition for her contribution to the community at the Hinchingbrooke presentation on February 2.

Wisbech-based Bumps and Beyond is to receive £200 to purchase refreshments for an eight-week Antenatal Courses and to buy a baby simulator.

The project is supported by Cambs County Council, staff from the Wisbech Children’s Centre and Youth Service (Locality Teams - Wisbech).

The project provides antenatal classes for teenagers who are expecting their first baby. The classes have been designed by young people who are already young parents and professionals from NHS and local services.

Two young people from the project are also set to receive certificates of recognition.
