Wythenshawe young people in outward bound adventure



A group of young people from across Wythenshawe recently got to spend time at Borwick Hall Outdoor Education Centre, in Lancashire.

The weekend was organised by the WCHG Youth involvement team and funded by WCHG and Manchester City Councils Youth and Play funding.

The group, which included local young people with SEND and complex needs, were supported by Youth workers from WCHG and 2 trainee Youth Forum volunteers, took part in a range of activities.

Bronwen Lewis-Brooke, Partnership Lead for Youth at WCHG said: “Everyone had a great time on the trip, which was free for all the young people who attended.

“There were lots of things for the young people to try while we were there, including climbing activities, team building exercises, as well as quizzes and competitions. There was also a day spent caving, which believe me isn’t for the faint hearted, but the young people loved it.

“The food at the centre was lovely and in the evenings we all sat around a big campfire. By the time Sunday came around many of the young people didn’t want to leave!”
