Supporting the Youth in our Community
At our most recent Zoom gathering we heard from Joyce Spiller and Kevin Vasey from the Purbeck Youth and Community Foundation.
PYCF supports youth clubs and outreach work throughout Purbeck, but there is a lot more to it than that. Under normal circumstances the group organises a variety of activities, mainly for the younger people in our community but they also have a section for more mature members.
Currently, of course, like everything else, their activities have had to be curtailed but that hasn’t stopped them and the weekly Zoom bingo sessions have proved to be quite a hit. Other online activities such as simply keeping in contact with friends have proven to be equally important.
Swanage & Purbeck Rotary have been keen to try and support PYCF, both directly and via #Willdoes and we were delighted to be able to spend some time listening to Joyce and Kevin speak so enthusiastically about the youngsters that they are working with.
