In an effort to raise funds in support of Mental Health Day, the Youth Service collaborated with Clubhouse Gibraltar for the second year running. The event was a great success with two cake stalls and the Youth Service DJs providing a day of entertainment on stage.

The Youth Service would like to offer thanks to all who supported the event, the young people, parents and guardians involved ensuring the day was a great success.

In addition to the day event, the Youth Centre also participated in a ‘Big Sleep Out’ event inspired by UK charities ‘Shelter’ and ‘Framework’. A group of young people and workers were sponsored by friends and family to spend a night sleeping rough in John Mackintosh Square.

 

As well as supporting Mental Health Awareness this formed part of their Life Skills project where they have been learning about poverty and homelessness. The group also spent the morning of Ascension Thursday helping out in the kitchen at Nazareth House. All funds raised will be donated to Clubhouse Gibraltar and Nazareth House.
