Following a generous donation from the Farnham Masons St Andrews Lodge, 40 Degreez were able to take a group of 16 young people spanning all our youth clubs to a residential weekend at Haslemere PGL activity centre.
Over the first May bank holiday weekend when the weather showed all its forms in the space of two days! everyone took part in obstacle courses in the rain, abseiling in the wind, zip wire in the freezing cold, giant swing in the sun, problem solving in hail, team building and archery..snowing! and manhunt in the dark! People challenged themselves physically, mentally and emotionally, quite a few missed home and family but everyone rose to show their best selves, conquered fears, enjoyed being together with friends and made new ones too.
It was a lively weekend of fun, laughter, (a few tears), the gaining of independence, confidence, realizing individual value and becoming a team 🙂 Due to the positive outcomes from this residential we would like to run more. Kind donations like this one from the Masons make it possible for those who attend our youth clubs to have equal access to valuable opportunities for self-development. Big Thank You from everyone 🙂
