On Wednesday 9th of July two participants (Mari Wyn Jones and Dion Williams) a peer mentor (Emma Humphryson) and Iona and Kath from Walkways went to RAF Valley's Youth Day. This was a day organised by Babs Hemmings, the camp's Engagement and Communications Officer, to raise awareness of the military and civilian roles available locally.


The day began with a fitness test delivered by a Physical Training Instructor. Iona, Mari and Emma were exhausted by the end, but Dion still had as much energy as he'd had at the start – he was like a machine! We were then taken over to the Search and Rescue unit where we were all winched into a static helicopter. Before lunch we visited a civilian workshop where they check, repair and pack parachutes and emergency rations.


At lunchtime we were lucky enough to meet Welsh comedian, Rhod Gilbert, who was there filming for an upcoming series. Kath was completely star-struck!
After lunch we visited the Fast Jet unit. We were shown all of the different types of simulators and were allowed to sit in one of the T2 jets.
It was a fantastic day and we are extremely grateful for the once in a lifetime opportunities given so generously to our participants (and staff!)
