Martin Thacker MBE, chair of North-East Derbyshire District Council and vice-chairman of the Spireites, visited Camp Inspire earlier this week.
Commenting after his visit to Parkside Community School, Martin said: “It was humbling to visit Camp Inspire and witness first-hand the programme planned for local children and young people.
“Participants were able to engage with peers, staff and volunteers in a meaningful way. Carefully considered activities ensured that children were motivated and able to develop skills.
“It was wonderful to see how self-esteem was promoted at the same time. The atmosphere was positive and vibrant. The project is very worthwhile and genuinely inspiring.”
