Youthwatch Darlington launch 'Healthy Food' competition marking the start of their 'Healthy Eating & Exercise' awareness raising project - Now Closed

As restrictions begin to ease and the warmer weather arrives, Youthwatch Darlington think it's a great time to think about positive ways to look after our wellbeing. To mark the launch of their project they share a competition with young people.

Competition now closed!! 


All throughout April & May 2021 Youthwatch Darlington will continue to raise awareness encouraging us to think about 'Healthy Eating & Exercise'.

They will be sharing information across social media and online with young people in an effort to make a difference. 

To launch this project they have created a 'Healthy Food' competition.
