I think the one big thing I will take with me from my days at Worcester Road, is this. There was somebody there who gave up so much of his time to make sure us “inbetweeners” had something constructive to do. We made friends. Some remain friends today, almost 30 years on. We were able to express ourselves without judgement. We took our expressions and our work all over the country and shared it with others. We knew we were safe and could try new things and not be ridiculed if it didn’t work. I developed real skills and for that alone, I am eternally grateful. Until you’ve been part of this amazing project, I don’t think it’s possible to understand the impact of it. And all that from having a laugh in a little hut in Bootle. What memories! I was talking about those days earlier today. What these young people get from this project can’t be put into words.
