The Talk, Speak, Yell
event held at the newly built Lighthouse, Lozells, on 30th May 2013, was attended by over 100 young people.
The event, organised by Common Unity and was designed to promote the URBRUM Youth Inclusion Well-being Project. Though the weather on the day was grey and chilly with the occasional glimpse of the sun, there was a lot on offer to brighten the day. There were free haircuts, Henna, Nail Art, and Message. Some of the young people enjoyed playing football and basketball.
The musical entertainment was supplied by Touch Agency.
A special feature of the day was the award ceremony presentation to members of Edgbaston United, a local football team sponsored by URBRUM.
The event was also a great opportunity to engage with young people around issues such as drugs, alcohol, sexual health, diet, wellbeing, art, music and sport.
Special thanks to the Princess Trust, Edgbaston United, Pertemps, Aquarius, Trident Reach Charity, Health Exchange, Freshwinds, Touch Agency and others for their support. We would also like to thank all the volunteers who worked so tirelessly to make the event a success.
