Really NEET End Of Year Event!

Posted on

Exam season has been and gone and the summer holidays are underway, which can mean only one thing…

It’s the end of another year at Really NEET and to celebrate we had our annual Really NEET event on Thursday 16th July, thanks to a helping hand from Freshly Squeezed Events and Union St.!

It was a packed house with friends of Really NEET travelling from far and wide to be with us and we’re incredibly grateful to all the support we have received from them this year!

To kick off proceedings, Sophie had a few words…

There was plenty of opportunity for the staff to embarrass themselves as we all huddled together for a rendition of Disney’s ‘Let It Go’, with a memorable introductory poetry reading from Jez!CKDZYbkXAAAmFtI

Other challenges for the staff included eating bugs, auctioning some of the young people’s artwork and some improvisational stand-up comedy!

Our job is to inspire NEET young people, but more often than not it’s the young people themselves who inspire us.

We heard from some of our young people, who joined the staff on stage to take part in the challenges, but also to discuss their journeys since joining Really NEET. It was an emotional finale and their stories touched the hearts of everyone present.

What an evening!

Roll on September…
