A Fresh Face For The Team

Published by Sydney O'Connor on

Hi all! My name is Sydney and I am thrilled to announce that I will be joining the Your Back Yard team for the next year.

So, a bit about me. I have just finished up my second year studying marketing and business at the University of Leeds, however I have known in my heart that community work is where my passions lie! Given the current situation, *cough* Covid-19 *cough*, I understand that more than ever people are in need of initiatives to improve areas of their life, such as isolation, low morale and digital inclusion, to name a few! 

Whilst at Your Back Yard I am hoping to speak to as many of you as possible! Now that the lockdown is starting to lift, our sessions are beginning to be back up and running, starting with Bramley Walking football! We had a blast on our first session back last Friday, and it was great to meet the team. I look forward to more projects like this starting again, covid permitting! 

Aside from meeting you in person, I would be really happy to speak to you via email also. If you feel there is a need in your community, such as a lack of social events, a demand for a sports group or a shortage of green spaces, feel free to contact me at sydney@yourbackard.org.uk. Our work is driven by the needs of people in the community so I would love to chat to you! 

Additionally, make sure you’re following our Facebook and Twitter pages to keep updated on what’s happening in your local area! 

That’s all from me for now, I hope to speak to you soon!
