There were some fruity treats on offer at the White Rose Shopping Centre thanks to pupils from Morley schools.

Leeds 2 Success worked with pupils from both The Morley Academy and Bruntcliffe School over the summer holidays on a new community impact challenge,

Delivered by Rachael Kennedy, in partnership with charity Raising Your Game, young people were set the challenge to create a project of their own - the only expectation was that it had to have a positive impact on them and their community.

One group decided to create a non-alcoholic cocktail bar, called Flip Flops, serving drinks to the passing public at the White Rose Centre.

The project ran from Morley Town Hall and included workshops on team building, confidence, decision making and understanding consequences of actions.

Rachael said: “I was impressed with how the young people worked effectively as a team, took ownership of their new project and members of the public were impressed suggesting that Flip Flops becomes a permanent fixturein Morley.”

Rachael added: “The White Rose were extremely supportive of this venture, providing expertise on budgeting and promotion and they provided the promotion space free of charge.

“Printing firm, Robrook Press also provided all promotion materials free of charge to support the project.”
