What people say

Some words from people involved in the link


During the two years I was involved in the link I formed life-long friendships, experienced a new culture and gained a new outlook on life. I feel so privileged to have been involved and blessed to have memories that I will treasure forever!


It gave me the opportunity to gain great new friends from different areas of the community, who I wouldn't have met otherwise. I also gained a lot of friends from Tanzania.


Being a part of the link has encouraged me to do things I would otherwise never dream of doing (skydiving?!). I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone, joining the link was the best decision I have ever made and I can honestly say I have enjoyed every minute of it.


We are supported with grants from Cumbria County Council and The Copeland Community Fund, without whom, the running of the link would not be possible.
