YOUTH CLUB SUMMER PROGRAMME
The annual Chinese Community Centre Youth Summer Programme ran for 3 weeks this August.
Over 34 young people aged between 11 and 18 participated in educational and fun activities organised by the Chinese Community Centre Youth Worker, Alastair Leung.
Educational activities included first aid and money management workshops taught by the Red Cross and volunteers from Barclays Lifeskills. Youth members also took part in drama and representation in the media workshops with the Yellow Earth Theatre and Veronica Needa from the True Heart Theatre. There was also an opportunity to visit London Zoo and learn about exotic animals. Tickets were kindly donated to the youth club by Fiona Daly and Shaftesbury PLC.
Physical activities included rock climbing, ice skating, a treasure hunt around China town and Leicester Square, kayaking in Brent reservoir, dragon boat racing with Typhoon Dragon Boat Club, bowling, playing hockey in the 2012 Olympic stadium, badminton, basketball, trampolining and cycling the road circuit at Lee Valley Velopark.
As the Summer Programme ended many youth members were sad to say goodbye. This programme has enabled young people to enjoy exciting activities and given those who are newly arrived a chance to make friends and discover London.
The cost of activities was subsidised for youth members by the London Chinese Community Centre through funds raised by Alan Lau and Joe Lam as well as funding from MyWestminster.
