Give...A Few Words Summer Giving Event
On the 12th of August 2021, Give…A Few Words organised it’s first ever event. With many volunteer opportunities cancelled or curtailed due to Covid 19, letter writing is a perfect volunteering opportunity. For this years NCS students from the Huddersfield Giants Community Trust and the Huddersfield Town Foundation, it was an ideal opportunity to get creative.
Not just letter writing but the near 50 students involved, experienced author and artistic workshops and got very creative! Combined with 15 businesses who kindly offered to host some general positive letters, Give…A few Words descended on Almondbury.
Aiming to reach isolated people and spread some much needed cheer to the general community. The event (in signature yellow), was a fantastic community/business event bringing students, businesses, partners and volunteers together.
People commented, “it made our day”, “it was an amazing event” “it got people chatting” “it brought Almondbury alive with a sea of yellow” 💛
Full credit and a BIG thank you to ALL the fantastic NCS students and staff involved this year, who demonstrated commitment, creativity and compassion and came up with some seriously brilliant ideas.
Thanks too to One Community, Locala CIC and Steven from Mailboxes etc for supporting this. Also to Ambry’s Community Cafe for not just giving us a base for the day but for showing much kindness.
