MORE than 120 children from five schools across Wrexham took part in a golf and life skills festival in Bellevue Par.
The event was run by the Empowering Youth Foundation (EYF) with support from Wrexham Sports Development. AYP officers and Young Ambassadors were on hand to help and guide the participants through the stations.
The festival brought children together to have fun, and for some, experience golf for the first time whilst learning about EYF’s nine core values such as honesty, respect, sportsmanship and judgement. The Empowering Youth Foundation works with children across Wrexham. Participants learn valuable lessons about the importance of maintaining a positive attitude, how to make decisions by thinking about the possible consequences and how to define and set goals.
The teams completed a nine-hole course with various activities. Each station was named after one of the charity’s nine core values including honesty, integrity and sportsmanship. In the end it was pretty close but it was a team from All Saints Primary who scooped first place and took home the trophy.
Molly Whelan, the charity development manager of the Empowering Youth Foundation, said: “It has been a brilliant day, the sun was shining and everyone had a great time, the kids were fantastic.
“Huge thanks goes to Mayor Barbara Roxburgh for taking time to come and visit our event and meet the children and to Bethan Sumpter, AYP manager, and her team for all of their help on the day. Bring on next year!”
