    Hi All,

    People my mum works with within the youth service, run a Hong Kong exchange every year, in which young adults (17-25), get the opportunity to do an exchange with Hong Kong people.

    We stay in Hong kong for two weeks in a hotel, and they stay on the Wirral for 2 weeks in a youth hostel.

    We have to raise the funds, and there was a meeting on it on Wednesday Evening.

    I applied for it and got invited to the meeting, so I went along with my mum and Everyone had to give a small speech on why you should get to go to Hong Kong. I totally wasn't prepared as I didn't know we had to make a speech.

    Everyone had lot's of stuff to say (most of them where full of rubbish, and blew their own trumpets for about 10 minutes!)

    I didn't know what to say at all so I just said "I would like to go to experience the other cultures, and also it'd be a brilliant chance to make new friends, and show them our culture, and our school/college system"

    I was really down cos I thought I wouldn't get to go (12 place, 25 people applied) and they all had really long winded speeches.

    I got a letter this morning and I CAN GO!!! :bounce022::bounce022:

    I'm so excited, I have to go to a meeting on the 26th of November, and then after that we have a meeting once a month, and do fund raising for about 3 months before we go (Pub crawls, sponsored bike rides, bag packing ect) We look after them for 1 night in our own home, and then we have to go and look after them when they are staying at the youth hostel too, show them around our area ect.

    Wow, that's just amazing Josh, well done

    I wonder if you'll be able to spare a day for Disney whilst you're there









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
