Region 1 - Young Adult Programme: Spread the Love

Region 1 Youth launched a new initiative called #STL in December, which stands for Spread The Love. The idea of this initiative is to make everyone more aware of the small random acts of kindness that happen around them every day. In December we kickstarted the project by continuing our regular December YAP session where we made 133 hampers, consisting of gloves, scarves, hats, socks, coat, and sleeping bag. Which was given to the charity The Passage, who then distribute them to the homeless people in London.

As well as this great project, we also decided to reach out to the children within the SSE. The children were asked if they would like to join the Youth in practicing ceiling on desires, by saving their pocket money to buy presents for the children in hospital during the festive period. In total Region 1 managed to collect around 250 presents, which we then split and gave to Great Ormond Street Hospital and Royal Marsden Hospital.

The hospitals really appreciated this act of kindness, and sent us letters to portray their appreciation.
