August 2016 Newsletter
- From 12-18th June our young people took part in ESTEEM’s annual hike over Stage 3 of the French Pyrenees. Our hikers enjoyed discovering the local villages, exploring the country-side and taking in the stunning views in France. With almost 10 hours of hiking every day it was a real test of character for our young participants and friends of ESTEEM; despite a few blisters, it was an awesome experience! Check out our blog to find out what else we got up to on our adventures: http://esteem.adamjack.co.uk/?p=52

- ESTEEM’s “Bad Wrap” was pitched at Emmaus, Portslade Old Village, with Brighton Soup. We won almost £300, which we will be putting toward our upcoming litter picking project.
- ESTEEM’s new selling page has been set up for our young people to sell their own arts and craft creations and learn about entrepreneurship. If our young people need some extra cash we encourage them to use our selling site for the promotion and selling of anything they create, we split the profits from this as 60% goes to them and 40% is given back to the social enterprise, ESTEEM ink. designs, so we can continue to have this resource available within ESTEEM https://www.facebook.com/EsteemSellingPage

“…Apparently a paw-shake is considered
“polite” in the eyes of the two-legged ones…
Don’t ask me! Being the one in charge of
