Once again the Thurrock Youth Cabinet held another successful evening in the form of a Silent Disco and Mocktail Event thanks to the funding of ‘Take Part’. Whilst the evening was brilliant fun it also had a serious message to raise the awareness of binge drinking within the youth community.
It was clear from talking to the Cabinet members that they were all very concerned about the growth of binge drinking and the dangers that it creates. Therefore, they were determined to show their peers that they could still have a brilliant time if they simply opted for their delicious non-alcoholic mocktails and a selection of awesome music!
All of the money that was raised from the evening will be used to refuel the Youth Cabinet’s, Youth Opportunity Fund. The purpose of the Youth Opportunity Fund is to provide young people with the financial support to run projects of their own. This is without a doubt a brilliant service that the Youth Cabinet provide and highlights once again what a brilliant asset they are to Thurrock!!
