Congratulations Jon

At the recent ‘Understanding Disability’ Awards Ceremony held in Cardiff, Jon Jones, a member of Sparkle Youth Club ,was presented with the ‘Young Volunteer of the year 2017’ award.

Councillor Janice Charles said “Young people are often better ambassadors of inclusion than adults but often this goes unnoticed and is not celebrated . The Young Volunteer Award aims to recognise a young person that has made a real effort to make life easier and more enjoyable for his or her peers”.

Jon has attended various Sparkle activities for over 6 years and he is now an enthusiastic volunteer at the Sparkle Saturday Play Club.

Jon said “ I am really pleased to receive this trophy and certificate, they are great. I love to volunteer at play club because I have such good fun with the children and I like to help the staff”.

From everybody at Serennu Children’s Centre, well done and congratulations to Jon on this great recognition
