Annual General Meeting 2015 in a nutshell


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.

Bolton YMCA supports France after tragic events of 13th November

On Friday 13th of November 2015, tragic terrorist attacks happened in Paris.

During our Drop-In session and the Youth Council last Monday, young people got opportunity to express themselves about events. They shared their feelings and how they reacted when news were announced.

“It upset me as innocent people have suffered for some others self-pleasurement and gain from something so horrible and disgusting. I am also disgusted at people blaming one race for the attacks when infact its just the minority of people causing this problem. I also feel sorrow for the families that have lost others due to the attacks. My heart and health goes to everyone there as they will need it in this dark times.” Adam, 17.


Young people of Bolton YMCA wanted to send their wishes to Parisians and French people. To join their chain, you can print the sign and post your picture on Facebook. #BYMCA
