Tresaith Youth Residential

It’s always a great time of the year when we can take our teenagers away on a residential, and this week we had a great time in a beautiful little coastal village in West Wales called Tresaith. We had 5 wonderful volunteers, on their first free@last residential, making it possible for 18 teenagers, aged 11 to 17, to have a fun, relaxing time. We enjoyed time on the beach, surf kayaking, coastline exploring, a day at Oakwood Theme Park, fish & chips on the conk at Tenby and a game of archery tag, amongst many other activities. Our young people are awesome, and we are so proud of them, not just for washing up but all the working together to make this an amazing holiday. Thank you to Sarah, Jille, Titch, Cal & Adam and to all the sponsors for making this possible – you’re all amazing.

Queens Award for Voluntary Service

free@last is delighted to announce that we are honoured to have received the Queens Award for Voluntary Service. The tireless work of our team of volunteers, staff and supporters over the past 20 years has been recognised by the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK.

We will be presented with the Award, by John Crabtree, Lord Lieutenant of the West Midlands, during a ceremony later this year, and as part of the Award proceedings, John & Jan were privileged enough to represent free@last at a recent Garden Party at Buckingham Palace.

free@last is passionate about improving the lives of the children and young people in Nechells and we continue to work through the challenges that all voluntary organisations currently face, as well as the many local ones, so that we can provide the necessary support and a breadth of opportunities to broaden horizons and improve futures.

If you would like to become part of our award winning team then please get in touch with us by emailing info@freeatlast.st or calling 0121 327 5959
