Aldbourne Youth Council win another award

Aldbourne Youth Council were awarded the Prince of Wales Award of Honour for their Community Junction project at the Royal Bath and West Show.

The award was presented by the Duchess of Cornwall and accepted by current Youth Chairman Harry Armstrong and Founder Trustee Andy Devey on behalf of Aldbourne Youth Council.

A cheque for £1000 and an engraved bowl along with a certificate signed by Prince Charles was given (the certificate is already proudly on display at Community Junction!)

The Youth Council will meet to decide how the money will be used but early indications are it will be put towards the cost of providing youth activities open to all ages and abilities at the Aldbourne Youth Council National Play Day event. This is due to be held on the first Wednesday in August 11:00am – 3:00pm at the Farm Lane recreation ground, SN8 2DS.

Aldbourne Youth Council’s Grand Auction of Promises black tie dinner held on 10th May 2014 raised a whopping £16,000 which will go towards repaying Community Junction’s £25,000 loan. 20 young people looked after 86 adults who enjoyed champagne, canapés and a full sit down dinner at the Memorial Hall in Aldbourne. The Youth Council are extremely grateful to all who supported this event.
