Just before Christmas, The Activity Den hosted the 4th annual North Durham Youth Achievement Awards for young people throughout Stanley. The evening was to recognise and celebrate the positive work the young people do for their local community.
The Awards evening was supported by Durham County Council’s Stanley Area Action Partnership (AAP) and saw over 60 young people and youth workers attend from groups across the area including Stanley Young Peoples Club, Stanley Youth Project, Oxhill Youth Club, Woodcraft Folk, Steps and The Activity Den. Awards were presented to both groups and individuals for the effort and commitment that young people have shown to a variety of projects.
Volunteer of the Year Awards were presented to Zac Sunderland from The Activity Den and James Clark from The Woodcraft Folk for their outstanding commitment and dedication to the projects. Even the entertainment was provided by the young people, with Allyssa, Emily and Anya taking to the stage before the disco got well underway!
