In 2017 our creative group of kids from Devon, Dorset, Hampshire and Sussex are staying at the Kingswood Inspired Learning Centre overlooking Whitecliff Bay on the beautiful Isle of Wight
The group will enjoy a week of painting and music under the inspirational guidance of Johny from London’s Gallery Midnight, retired music teacher Jim, and instrumentalist Tommo, who put down his guitar and drumsticks to research into childhood cancers at Manchester University’s Viral Oncology Research Laboratories.
When not painting the scenic delights of Wight, or making music around the evening campfire at Kingswood, the kids will take time off to for swimming, body boarding or searching the beach rock pools for crabs and stranded mermaids.
Three earlier Youth2Go youngsters have gone on to study Art or Music at College. We hope that others will discover a similar creative path to fulfilment and success through the Youth2Go experience.
We thank Ray Collins Charitable Trust of Wantage for their donation of a complete range of musical and percussion instruments, easels and art materials for our Creative Workshops. Wantage Town Girls Football Club and the Peaky Climbers are sponsoring this year’ s Youth2Go week in memory of Maisie Norton who enlivened our Youth2Go programme, (and her Wantage Town Girls Football team), with her joyful presence until cancer took her from us.
