Ollie O'Meakin has been our Lead Youth Worker here at SSYI for more than 3 years and has done many great things to further the work of the initiative. As of next week he will be starting a new job with South West Youth Ministries in Devon. The committee, young people and the other workers have been very appreciative of the work that he has done in his time here. To ensure he had a proper send off we transformed our Friday youth club into a surprise leaving party for him. Many of the young people turned out to wish him well and many happy memories where told.
A large cardboard cut out of Ollie in a dress was provided to 'selfie' with, alongside loads of food and drink. It was great to see such a large turn out and it really shows what an impact Ollie has made on so many young peoples lives.
