Nomination for inspirational charity group
Friday 5th September 2014
The Exodus Project works in some of the neediest parts of the borough with children aged eight to 15 to help raise their self esteem and realise their future aspirations.
The aim is to get them to take responsibility for themselves and pride in their communities.
Exodus has more than 60 volunteers, of which more than half are former members.
Mid-week activity clubs are run in Worsbrough Common, Darfield, Birdwell, Staincross and town centre, which involve dance, drama, music, sport and games. Children are also encouraged to discuss issues relevant to their community.
Every week, there is a different subject relevant to 'citizenship' - such as graffiti, vandalism or respect for the elderly.
They have been nominated for a Proud of Barnsley award.

GM Wilson Solicitors Ltd opened its second office in Dodworth, Barnsley in June 2007 and since then it has gone from strength to strength with a growing team of specialist solicitors. With the added bonus of having parking just outside the door, the Dodworth branch is continuing to flourish.
GM Wilson Solicitors Ltd has been based in Wakefield city centre since the firm was established in 1975 by Mr GM Wilson, and latterly, taken over by senior partner David Brooke who has over 30 years’ experience.
The firm is proud to say the majority of its work comes from repeat business and client recommendations alongside strong working relationships with estate agents and builders in Yorkshire and the surrounding areas.
Over the last few years GM Wilson Solicitors Ltd has seen a large increase in its online conveyancing service, which brings in work from all over the country.
Mr Brooke says GM Wilson Solicitors Ltd aim is to provide a quality bespoke service to clients covering a range of core matters such as residential and commercial purchases, commercial leases, business formation, pension purchases and wills and probate, all dealt with by its specialist team of solicitors, not to mention the firm’s ever expanding litigation department.
Mr Brooke said: “Our decision to open in Barnsley proved to be a good one and we have always found the people of Barnsley to be straight forward, honest and trustworthy, who appreciate being treated in the same way, which is the way we like to do business.
“We are thrilled to be part of the Proud of Barnsley awards and to present the School of the Year award. This award recognises not only the hardwork of students, but also of all the teachers and staff who dedicate their lives to teaching children and helping them develop into well-rounded adults who will become the future of Barnsley.”
