On the 18th October halow was honoured to attend the Surrey Youth Focus Celebration of Youth and Volunteer event. Members of the fundraising team and halow young people had the opportunity to meet other youth organisations and network.
It was a fun and motivating event as young people from around Surrey were able to showcase their talents and celebrate the work of organistions in the county. Young people gave musical performances and heartfelt demonstrations throughout the day.
The event culminated in an awards ceremony for young people from the many organisations and businesses involved in the event. halow was presented with a certificate from the High Sheriff of Surrey who had previously visited our A Reason To Get Up initiative after providing a £1,000 grant to Crafty Creations and praising halow's work.
The awards ceremony was a moving spectacle and well hosted by BBC Surrey presenter Sylvie Blackmore.
Thank you to Surrey Youth Focus for their support of halow. We hope to join the wonderful event next year and look forward to meeting more life changing organisations.
