Mentors and Mentees Group Outing
On 6th July those involved in our XL-Mentoring project spent their first evening together as a larger group. The 1:1 mentoring programme has been running since January this year, though some mentees have only just joined the group, so it was the first time these students from two different Burton High Schools had completed an activity together.
After meeting at Paulet High School, who kindly donated use of their minibus for the evening, the group headed to McDonald’s to fuel up with burgers and McFlurry’s before heading to Whitemoor Lakes Activity Centre to take part in an archery session.
It was a great evening that was possible thanks to the support from both Tesco Community Trust and East Staffordshire Borough Council who have given grants towards the ongoing costs of this project.
