Since starting up in August the Shine Project has really got off to a great start.
We have carried out numerous trips, groups and one to one sessions.
In August we took a group of girls from Beeston and Holbeck camping in the outskirts of huddersfield. This trip was tiring for all involved but was such a great time of building relationships between the girls and between the team.
On the trip the girls learnt how to put up a tent, to start a fire from scratch and how to cook food on it. They also took part in loads of great team building activities and kept the staff up into the small hours of the morning with their excitement of their first night camping ever!
Since the trip we have seen the girls a few times every week in various sessions and have also started some one to one mentoring with some of them.
