Community Lanterns in York

Children making Christmas lanterns

This wonderful film shows a recent lantern making event organised by York's Local People Project - delivered by TCV and funded by The People's Health Trust.

Formed in 2016, the project steering group is made up of 6 local residents of Guildhall and Tang Hall who meet to discuss how they want the project to progress and what they feel are their local priorities. These priorities include a variety of subjects including addressing homelessness and addiction, supporting the elderly and providing family activities and events. The lantern event was one of these.

This film highlights the group's hard work and determination to address a key priority in their community and to put on a fantastic event for local residents.
