Kyle O’Gorman

A repeat volunteer

25 October 2022 | All News

Kyle came on board as part of his employability programme with Hatch through UK Youth. Working on our cricket club programme, started in 2022 in partnership with the GMCA, Lancashire Cricket Foundation and the ECB, Kyle has now returned to two back to back projects across Greater Manchester. Starting at Blackley Cricket Club, he’s been there from start to finish, fully present and even offered to come and help out for an extra week when the project ran over. He’s gained three City & Guilds accreditations with us in Painting & Decorating, Health & Safety and Carpentry. He was even voted Volunteer of the Month by one of the programme partners, Lancashire Cricket Foundation, and received tickets to a cricket match at Old Trafford in Manchester.

Here’s what he had to say about volunteering on the project: “I’ve really enjoyed my time at VIY, the project has come out really well, and looks so much different to how it started. I’m really looking forward to the next project and gaining my third qualification with VIY in carpentry. Construction is something I want to go into now.”
