President's Welcome

Well we’re half way through the year and summer has finally arrived!

Since the last Banter, we have supported our charity of the year’s annual event. The Barnsley Independent Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support (BIADS) hold a memorial walk at Wosborough County Mill and Park every year. We have our next fundraising event for BIADS planned for 26th September so watch this space for further updates. To donate visit our just giving page or text  JCIB55 and the amount you wish to donate to 70070.
Jo and I had the honour of attending the Barnsley College Excellence Awards, JCI Barnsley sponsored the Sixth Form College award and I presented the award to Bradley Carr, a worthy winner.  The evening was filled with inspiring students. Congratulations to all the winners.
While I was on my holi-bobs in Austria, Barnsley town centre was the host of Barnsley Live, a free music festival and as a social chamber we decided this was a perfect event. Our next socials are detailed below, and yes, the one you have all been waiting for is only a month away. Make sure you don’t miss our annual train pub crawl!
Last month’s Shine saw Russell Hobbs present a session on develop to succeed, we will be seeing Russell again as we have him booked for National Convention. The convention team are organising a great line up to celebrate 100 years of JCI so if you haven’t got the National Convention in your diary for 20-22 of November, why not? And if it’s in your diary, have you booked? With only 4 pay days between now and the convention, do it sooner rather than later!  We can’t wait to host it!

We have just hosted the JCI Yorkshire Wharfedale quiz, thanks to my Deputy Jo Mackfall for organising her first event and our Quiz Master Ben Hawley for an enjoyable evening. Congratulations to JCI Rotherham for winning the quiz. The next regional event is Yorkshire Day in Doncaster.

We have some great events coming up, and I hope to see you at an event soon.

JCI Barnsley Annual Train Pub Crawl

It's that time of year again! Those from Barnsley, across the region and beyond, get together to sample the delights of train line drinking!  Starting at 12:30 in the Joseph Bramah for a spot of lunch, we jump on the 14:01 to Huddersfield ready for our first stop! Hopping on and off until we are slightly merry and ready for some grub in the form of the Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival. A mad dash for the last train sees us all happy and sleepy! Hope to see you all there!

Now in its fourth year, the programme will give the opportunity for aspiring leaders to become better leaders through the high quality training. Booking closes on 31st July so be quick!
