Earlier in the month, the team from the YMCA Weston Youth Café headed to London for the annual Youth Matters Awards, hosted by YMCA England and Wales.
The team were shortlisted in the Diversity Award category alongside Weston Youth Councillor Iris Farler-Smith who was a finalist in the Young Campaigner of the Year category.
Despite not being successful in either category, the team were moved by the level of dedication and commitment shown by all of the other finalists and were grateful to have been shortlisted.
The evening celebrated everything that has happened in the past year for YMCA’s nationally and was a showcase of the outstanding work everyone has been doing.
