Citizenship advice from the Dragons

Submitted by on August 15, 2013 – 10:47 amNo Comment

We recently sent Suma Member Bob to be a (very friendly) Dragon in a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style judging of young people’s community projects in Bradford.

The project leaders were a colourful bunch and their projects equally so. One example was a 20-foot mural from Team Dynamo, highlighting what they love and don’t love about Bradford. Team Beat the Box brought an equally interesting events and fundraising proposal for a youth homelessness project.
The judges were our own Bob Cannell along with Bradford Councillor Rizwan Malik. Bob gave his words of wisdom and Rizwan took on the full Duncan Bannatyne role.

The event was part of a National Citizenship Service summer school run by our good friends the Woodcraft Folk- a national cooperative youth movement. If you are planning a festival or a camp, you can talk to us about supplying you with wholesome veggie food and drink like we do for Woodcraft Folk camps. If you would like to know more about Woodcraft see The Woodcraft Folk website.
