With August bank Holiday just gone, School and University returns on the horizon, I find myself looking back over the last 6 months and at what we have achieved.
Our summer started back in April and we kicked off with a Nerf War down the woods. Its the second year we have done this and its growing fantastically. This year we managed to get 32 people, young and old, running around the woods for 3 hours! A brilliant way to spend a soggy Sunday in Cornwall.
Our next project came to an end around the same time.
This was our Snickets Crowdfunder campaign that helped to get books to children. We managed to raise enough to set up a small library of free books in a youth hub and to stock it with books. We are working on a book swap later this year to replenish stock and keep the interest up in reading.
We have been involved with Erasmus + on two occasions this summer. A trip to Braga in Portugal to learn more about Youth Exchanges and then in August we took part in a Youth Exchange to Italy where we took 4 young people out to meet wit h30 others from across Europe for a week of fun, games and learning adventures.
Our blog is designed to keep you up to date on Cultivate Cornwall news and all the different projects we are working on.
