Our proposal for a Young People’s Community Cafe at WEYES has been shotlisted for the Jubilee People’s Millions. Young People, staff and young people at WEYES have worked with Tyne Tees TV to produce a short appeal which will be televised on Monday 27th June. It will appear 'head to head' alongside an appeal for a scheme in Knaresborough to help elderly people with their shopping. Then the public get to vote by phone and the project with the most votes gets the money. You can read about both projects and how it works on the Jubilee Peoples Millions website: www.peoplesmillions.org.uk/2011-finalists/tyne-tees
Our appeal is for £60,000 to set up a cafe in the existing large kitchen area at WEYES. The cafe will provide work experience for young people in food preparation, food hygiene and service skills. During the week it will be open for young people. But at weekends we will open it to the whole community so building bridges between the generations.
We need as many people as possible to vote for us on Monday 27th June (we think we need at least 60,000 votes!). Please show your support by sharing it on Facebook: www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=123950607687586 You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the phone number to vote for us when it is published on 27th June.
