We were surprised, delighted and honoured to win the first ‘Holywood Trust Award’ of a very generous £7,500. To be chosen by our voluntary sector peers from 43 nominations was special to us and many thanks to all who voted for us, and to all the other nominees, who do wonderful work in supporting the region’s young people. The Holywood Trust play such a vital role in supporting over 160 groups and many more individual young people with grants that make such a positive impact and real difference to them – thank you so much. Our superb volunteer befrienders, through 1:1 befriending, change lives and help vulnerable young people realise their potential.
Project Manager Alex Dickson said “This is wonderful recognition of all those involved in D&G Befriending Project – but particularly of our volunteer Befrienders who give their time, support and life experience to steer a young person through a challenging period in their lives”
