Chorley's young people feeling inspired after action packed weekend
Young people from ‘Inspire’ Chorley Youth Zone took part in their first President’s Cup competition at Carlisle Youth Zone.
On Saturday 27th May young people from ‘Inspire’ Chorley Youth Zone joined almost 300 young people from across the UK to compete in the President’s Cup. A national competition which sees young people from across the OnSide Youth Zone network compete to be crowned winners.
In preparation for the competition, Chorley’s young people stayed overnight at Wigan Youth Zone where they were able to train for the competition.
The President’s Cup, now in its fifth year, saw Chorley’s young people go head to head against other Youth Zones on a series of challenges including boccia, dodgeball, tag rugby, wheelchair basketball, graffiti art and climbing.
The competition brought together teams from Carlisle, Bolton, Blackburn, London, Manchester, Oldham, Wigan, Wirral, Wolverhampton and, for the first time, Chorley and Warrington, and was a great opportunity for the team to make new friends with young people from across the country.
The weekend left young people feeling inspired about their soon to be built Youth Zone and they have already begun planning to attend events in Chorley to promote their new Youth Zone – Inspire.
If you’d like to meet the Chorley Youth Zone team visit us at Picnic in the Park on Sunday 25th June at Astley Park where we will be spreading the word about our new Youth Zone.
