Thanks for Coming to the 2016 IYC Garden Party!

It’s Your Choice would like to thank all of our friends and supporters that turned out on Wednesday for our annual Garden Party.

We couldn’t do the work we do without your funding and support so on behalf of the staff, volunteers, and most importantly our young people – thank you!

“I’m delighted that all the hard work by everyone paid off so well with beautiful weather and that so many of our friends and supporters turned out. The 2016 Garden Party was a huge success” ~ Mike Taylor, Chair of Trustees


“Our annual Garden Party was once again a huge success. The sun shone and it was great to see so many of our friends and supporters. In particular we were delighted to welcome Councillor Goff Beck, Chair of New Forest District Council, Vice-Chair Councillor Christine Ward and past Chairs Councillors Maureen Holding and Alison Hoare. Our relationship with the District Council is so important to us and we really value their support.” ~ Chris Carey, CEO

Commenting on his time with us, Cllr Beck said:

“I enjoyed some very interesting conversations whilst networking with a number of your guests who support IYC in some way or the other.  However I must say that the most encouraging point from my point of view was being able to speak with the four young people who had taken up the opportunity of working with your staff and changing their particular life styles completely. I wish them every success in finding full time employment and keeping on the correct side of the law.” ~ Cllr Beck
