Editor’s Piece (Still time for further applications).
As mentioned in Ian’s notices preciously the applications for this year’s RYLA are coming up and need to be in by the end of February. If you know of any 20 – 26-year-olds who you think may benefit from this experience then it would be great to put them forward. From experience having had my daughter attend I can see what a life-changing experience this is for those who go along. Last year’s RYLA was cancelled and the person who was going to attend is luckily still able to attend this year. The actual event is held in April and is on the shores of Lake Karapiro which i am sure will be an amazing and inspiring venue. If you want to send the details to friends and family or work colleagues here is a link to the website.
