The rain may have poured but it didn’t dampen our spirits on last weekend’s Worsbrough Mill ‘Bug Off’Camp!
It was a jam packed weekend which began with a steady walk around the calming reservoir. Then as we delved further into the camping spirit we became at one with nature learning all about the bugs we were to be sharing camp with, with our resident bug expert!
Don’t miss the last UPLIFT event in the current calendar, join us for ‘Wetlands Wollow’, tomorrow at RSPB Old Moor!

Thanks to the YSP team for a joyful day in the most joyful surroundings!
It’s not long to go till the greatest race on Earth passes through God’s own county, Yorkshire! And in the spirit of the Tour De France, UPLIFT celebrated with a little French fancy of their own!
Tres bon! Tres bon!

Creative Recovery’s efforts were recognised in Lord Mayor’s Parade as we picked up the prize for the “Most Outstanding Contribution!”
Three cheers for us and our fantastic following!
After the honour of being announced as the Mayor’s Official Charity, UPLIFT participants were keen to create lots of excitement in the build up to the Mayor’s Parade and a real buzz in preparation for the Pierrots coming to town! The result of which was a highly creative and comic teaser video, with a debut performance from the Mayor and Mayoress themselves! This went across Social Media and was ‘Liked’ and ‘Retweeted’ all across town!
Pierrots, we salute you!

It's official – we can now reveal that we are one of the Mayor's Charities for the forthcoming year. What a great achievement!
We’d like to take this opportunity to welcome the Mayor of Barnsley, Councillor Tim Sheppard into his new post and wish him all the best in his Mayoral duties. We’d also like to say a big thank you for choosing Creative Recovery as one of the official Mayor's charities - it is a great honour.
Saturday night saw UPLIFT back in Goldthorpe for a good ol’ Shindig!
With a little help from our friends Parable and UPLIFT artist Cecile there was dancing and stomping and wonderful crafting! It was great to see some friendly faces and meet some new folk too!
