Nine Centre Spot volunteers spent the day out in London first for some BMX riding at Lee Valley VeloPark, and then for a meal at Nandos.
Lee Valley VeloPark is where Team GB triumphed on the track during the London 2012 Games and is made up of the iconic Olympic velodrome, the remodelled 390 metre Olympic BMX track, five miles of new mountain bike trails and a new one mile road circuit.
The trip was made possible thanks to the Street Games Volunteer recognition fund, which recognises the contribution of young volunteers to Street Games projects across the UK. Centre Spot was awarded £500, which the Volunteers decide to spend on a day out in London.
Louis Anderson –Thompson Centre Spot Volunteer said:
“I really enjoyed today, I knew the BMX riding will be fun, but it turned out to be a lot more fun than I thought. Thanks to Street Games for paying for our day out. I have really enjoyed volunteering, it has made me more confident and also made me a better coach”
As well as volunteering for Centre Spot, Young volunteers get to take part in Youth Conferences, Young Volunteers residential and Training, plus other exciting opportunities such as the ‘StreetGames Young Advisors’ and delivery of local youth led projects through the Street Games Youth Led Funding.
