Garden party in city centre

Have your say

Two Sheffield Youth Projects are gearing up to turn the Sheffield Winter Garden into a garden party this weekend.

Youngsters from two Supporting Others Through Voluntary Action projects will be there tomorrow from 1pm to 4pm, demonstrating a range of arts and crafts, dancing and encouraging shoppers to join in the fun, with face painting, felt jewellery, bug art and finger puppets.

Positive Activity SOVA Sheffield and the SOVA CAST projects provide a drop-in and mentoring service to vulnerable and disadvantaged young people.

Josh Christie, Project Co-ordinator for PASS, said: “For the young people we work with there are not many outlets to showcase their talents.

“Over the last year SOVA has developed opportunities for our young people to have a go at dance, drama and singing and it is great to give them the chance to show a wider audience what they can do.”
