Blackburn Youth Zone volunteers recently played a huge part in delivering our Launch Event – assisting in anything from catering the event to talking to HRH Prince Edward regarding the volunteering programme.
In order to thank them for all their hard work and support, volunteers were invited to a very special event, hosted by the Mayor of Blackburn with Darwen, at the Town Hall.
Volunteers were welcomed into the historic surroundings of the Council Chambers and treated to light refreshments and a personal thank you from the Mayor of Blackburn with Darwen. The Mayor spoke about what a difference Blackburn Youth Zone volunteers will make to the borough and about the importance of their roles in ensuring services for young people will be maximised.
Blackburn Youth Zone Volunteering Manager Mubashar Khaliq praised volunteers for making the launch event a success, adding “we look forward to many more successful projects for Youth Zone volunteers to get involved with in the months and years to come”.
