Foundation Students Launch A4U Facebook Group
07 August 2012
Foundation students at Eccles Sixth Form Centre have launched a Facebook group aimed at raising awareness of activities available to young people in and around Eccles.
The project, named Activities For You (A 4 U), was part of their Skills for Working Life syllabus and took weeks of preparation, cumulating in the students hosting a launch event at Eccles Sixth Form Centre.
The event saw students offering free bacon sandwiches to anyone who signed up and ‘liked’ the A 4 U Facebook page, and was attended by Eccles Councillor Peter Wheeler.
Mr Wheeler said; “The students have done a brilliant job in planning and hosting their launch event, I hope that they are successful in encouraging people to join their Facebook group and raise awareness about all of the wonderful activities available to young people in the Eccles area. The bacon sandwiches are very tasty too!”
