The staff of Fleet Phoenix have played many different roles in my life over the last 9 years. For example, I entered the “Big Sis” house, a project that was run out of The Point Youth Centre annually for 5 years. It provided me with a lifetime of memories; including not to trust a monkey………probably best not to ask!
In my teenage years the Friday and Saturday night projects provided me with a safe place to be, have fun with my friends and start to learn about topics that effect young people’s lives……including my own. They also provided me with no end of support through various events in my life and sign posted me to the music project so that I could be more constructive with my time.
I’m now at a stage where I really appreciate all that they did for me and want to support others with the same opportunities. I volunteer at Hypelet and have become a Trustee for the Charity. Through issues that the Charity faced recently I decided to become a Fleet Town Councillor to see how I can further support the charity and local community.
