TODAY marks exactly 100 days until the grand opening of Wolverhampton’s new Youth Zone, The Way and to celebrate this milestone, 100 pupils from St Matthias School became the first young people to officially sign-up as members.
The Way’s newly recruited volunteer and Invictus Games gold medal winner, Andy Roberts from Wolverhampton joined 100 young people, to help raise awareness for the opening of the Youth Zone – a fitting way to mark the 100 day countdown.
Ervis Cera, member of The Way’s Young People’s Development Group who also attends St Matthias School said: “It was brilliant to meet Andy who told us how he overcame his injury to win a gold medal. The Youth Zone is so exciting for the city and I cannot wait for it to open. I hope once the Youth Zone is open and lots more young people sign up as members so we all have something to do, somewhere to go and someone to talk to in our free time.
