Manor CE Academy Young Leaders Take York City Shirts to Romanian Hospice

18th September 2013

Students from Manor CE Academy School York will take around 100 football shirts with them to Romania in October half-term as part of their Archbishop of York Young Leaders Award. York City FC sponsors, benenden health announced a charity shirt swap earlier this year following a rebrand. The football shirts are to be donated to two hospices run by the charity Cry in the Dark.

This is the second year running that Manor CE Academy students taking the Archbishop of York’s Young Leader Award have chosen to return to Romania.  To attain the Award, all students must complete a mix of both classroom and practical work which is focused on leadership skills and making a difference in local communities.

Cry in the Dark, have two projects providing palliative care services based in the Bacau region of North East Romania.  Steve Cooper, CEO Cry in the Dark said: “Friends, mission teams and school groups all play a big part in what we do.  God has big plans for the people and the Roma community of Negustroului which is where students from Manor will be involved in lots of practical work”.

Dan Finn, Director of the Youth Trust said: “I went with the students on last year’s visit to the hospices, and for many, it was a life-changing experience.  We enjoyed running sports and craft activities for the children and young people in Negustroului and I know that when we go again this year the children will be so excited to receive the football shirts. The village is very poor and many children grow up with little access to health care, clothing, clean water or education. Thanks to the work of Cry in the Dark this is starting to change and it’s amazing that the Young Leaders from Manor can play a part in this change”.  

Nicola Taylor, Communications Co-ordinator at benenden health said: “When we rebranded in January of this year and offered the York City fans new shirts in place of their old ones, we really wanted to ensure that the old shirts went to benefit good causes and its fantastic to see them going to hospices run in communities like Negustroului in Romania as well as projects in the North of England”.

York City in the Community visited Manor CE Academy on Tuesday 17th September to hand over the shirts to the Young Leaders for their distribution in Romania.
