Wakefield’s young offenders will help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Research by taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning this month.
Wakefield Council’s Youth Offending Team is working alongside the charity to raise funds and the young people will be serving refreshments and baking cakes to sell on the day. Their parents, magistrates and partner agencies have been invited to the event which is open to everyone....
Cabinet Member for Children and Young People Cllr Trevor Izon said: “The project was set up with a view to restorative justice. It gives the young people a better understanding of the harm their offending causes and who it affects. Equally important it gives them the opportunity to do something to repair the harm they have done and in this case, raise money for a good cause and see the benefits of what that can bring.”
The World's Biggest Coffee Morning is one of the biggest fundraising events in the UK, with an estimated two million people raising their mugs for Macmillan last year. It aims to raise more than £7 m for people affected by cancer this year.
