Bolton YMCA held its Annual general meeting on the Twelfth of November. The night was in part a celebration of the last twelve months of work, which also gave the staff, young people and volunteers to talk about their work and plans for the next twelve months.
The meeting was presided over by the President of Bolton YMCA, the Bishop of Bolton Rev. Chris Edmondson. The guest of honour was the Mayor of Bolton Cllr Carole Swarbrick.
During the evening, the attendees were treated to a musical performance by Vice-chair of Bolton YMCA’s Youth Council Rachel Higham.
The evening also saw young people being rewarded for their hard work in the last twelve months, with George Booer received an award for his volunteering with Third Space Café.
Daniel Wells received this year’s “Bolton YMCA Young volunteer of the year”
John Tabi was awarded “Bolton YMCA volunteer of the year”
Joe Roe was given this year’s attendee of the year, which speaks volumes of his involvement with the YMCA in the last twelve months.
The AGM also gave a chance for Bolton YMCA to celebrate the achievements of the young people, who have taken part in working projects abroad. It gave a chance for those young people to show their work to family and people in Bolton, plus receive their qualifications from the President.
