YOYP Fun Size Tour

The YOYP ‘Fun Sized Tours’, 21st – 24th February 2019:
“Would you be able to go along and promote your activities/service”
The Fun Sized Tour events are happening in February 2019. The Holywood Trust has contributed to the cost of the
events across the region and we are keen that as many organisations as possible take part.
There will be an event in each of the 4 areas across the region,
Annandale & Eskdale Thursday 21st February
Nithsdale & Upper Nithsdale Friday 22nd February
Stewartry Saturday 23rd February
Wigtownshire Sunday 24th February
The venues are still to be confirmed and each event will run from 12pm to 4pm.
The team organising the event – involving both workers and young people – are keen that there is a good variety of
organisations involved and to show the whole range of opportunities there are for young people in their area.
Whether sport, music, dance, acrobatic performances, fun activities, competitions, youth clubs, sailing, riding,
volunteering, advice, support, housing…
The organisers have said,
“The Fun Sized Tours will look to engage young people with the services which are pre-existing in their areas, we will
be able to promote youth services and also bring all our partners in each locality together.
These series of events have been designed by our Year of Young People Champions to give young people and local
groups/organisations a chance to have fun and an opportunity to learn more about their communities.
The young people within Dumfries and Galloway will be able to try new things with a selection of taster sessions from
sports to crafts. The YOYP Champions also hope to provide a BBQ and musical performances for the community and
lots more activities to enjoy.
We are looking for local groups/ organisations to either put on taster sessions or performances during the day. In
addition if your organisation offers a service please come along and provide information to our young people so we
can work together and they can see what is on for them.

If you would like to get involved in the Fun Sized Tour in your area, please
get in touch with Emily Davies at
Emily.Davies@dumgal.gov.uk right away and discuss your involvement.
ALSO, help is needed in:
promoting the event to young people, and getting young people along
to the event. There will be a planning meeting in the middle of January
to finalise all the details.
Please put the date in your diary, see if you can commit to getting involved,
promote it to young people and see if you can assist young people to get
along to the event.
The Holywood Trust will be having a stall at the event.
