The Mayor’s Community Weekend takes place across the West Midlands.  The aim is to encourage people to come together and enjoy various activities while celebrating the diversity of different cultures. It is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.

Young people worked together as a team during LeaderLab sessions to apply for a grant.  To their delight, they were awarded a maximum grant of £500 to deliver an afternoon of activity.

Subsequent LeaderLab sessions were used to organise activities, with parents being ‘persuaded’ to help!

Local businesses were extremely supportive.  The Coop staff donated cakes, Tesco donated fresh fruit and Valentine Clays donated air drying clay for the Play with Clay table.
