On 27th April, OnSide Warrington Youth Club were honoured to be invited to present at a prestigious event hosted by Cheshire Community Foundation at the Clink Restaurant at HMP Styal. The event was attended by donors and patrons who have supported Cheshire Community Foundation to fund hundreds of local charities and good causes.

Two of our junior members, Alex Haynes and Mika Harding, delivered speeches about what they had enjoyed and gained from attending the Holiday Clubs delivered by the Youth Club. They did a fantastic job representing the charity, and captivated the audience which included some very distinguished guests, including the Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire and President of OnSide Warrington Youth Club, David Briggs MBE.

The moving speeches spoke about the variety of projects on offer and how Holiday Club has helped them to gain confidence and make new friends. They also thanked the Foundation and their donors for their generosity and for ‘making life a whole lot better’. Following the event, Zoe Sheppard, Chief Executive at Cheshire Community Foundation, told us ‘Wow! Mika and Alex did you proud! They did such an incredible job of representing WYC and helping our donors and guests understand just what an amazing job you do – inspiring young people and helping them reach their full potential’.

Well done Alex and Mika for being such fantastic ambassadors for the charity!
