London-based youth charity celebrates 10th anniversary

HELPING: Young people pose in Skyway gear

A CHARITY that works with 'at risk' young people in Hackney and other inner London boroughs, is set to host a series of events to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

Skyway, who have supported over 12,000 youths over the years, aim to 'generate awareness, media interest and support' through their planned activities which will take place across London.

Jenkins Akinola, 19, who was referred to the charity two years ago by the Hackney Youth offending Team, said: “I would like to thank Skyway for their support.”

The teen now studies business at University and is working on his own film project and has been inspired to find positive ways to reach out to other Hackney youth.

One of SkyWay's anniversary celebrations they will be hosting a series of events, including a High Tea at Dalston Curve Garden on 28 September 2012.

Skyway said: "We are very proud of what they have achieved over the years and
would like to cordially invite you to attend their event as a special guest."

"Feel free to bring along friends, family and colleagues and help SkyWay to celebrate their achievements and find out more about the great work that they do."

One of their latest projects is ‘Grow SkyWay’, which aims to reconnect young people to their communities through cultivating neglected spaces to grow and sell produce. All profits will be ploughed back into the charity and the community will get to enjoy and participate in the transformation from unloved space to productive garden.
