Youth Resource Centre celebrates Halloween success

FOLLOWING six weeks of project preparations the Dungannon Youth Resource Centre held a three day half-term scheme.

It all kicked off on Monday, October 29th when young people came to the centre and took part in games, final art preparations, cooking, designs and project planning for the Halloween Party extravaganza held on the Wednesday the 31st.

On Tuesday the 30th participants engaged with the local emergency services teams in sessions and safety around fire works, bon fires as well as risk taking behaviours and the dangers on hoax calls.

Staff also ran mask making, pumpkin carving and spooky bun and cake creation.

On Wednesday 31st a disco was held from 5:00 pm to 8:30pm with £60’s worth of prizes food from a chip van, a spooktacular ghost crawl and a three-a-side and fancy dress competition, with professional face painting on site.

“We would like to thank the PSNI for their monetary contributions towards food for the evening and prizes as well as the NI Fire Service and Ambulance services for taking time out of their busy schedules to come meet the youth and support their learning around the dangers of this time of year as well as Anne Donaghy for her excellent free yet professional face painting services,” said a spokespersib for the Dungannon centre.

“The whole event was a success and all involved from the young participants and the 20 staff and senior volunteers had an excellent rewarding time over the three day duration.”

There will be many more events and projects and outings throughout November at Dungannon Youth Resource Centre.

Please contact the centre on the mentioned details or don’t be afraid to come along join the 100 pluss who already just drop in on Friday evenings from 5pm – 8pm.
