Mary Hart - March winner

The Wyken Adventure Centre recently celebrated its 21st anniversary, and Mary Hart has been involved since day one. She has developed and managed the centre, giving her time and energy both selflessly and tirelessly.

The Adventure Centre provides the opportunity for children and young people aged between 5 and 24 to experience activities such as abseiling, archery, music making, photography, First Aid and computers. When they reach the age of 18, the young people are encouraged to become more involved in the centre and become trustees of the charity.

Mary has been the driving force behind the centre and has raised funds to help the children safely take part in and enjoy activities they would not normally experience. Places at the playschemes, which are organised by Mary and her team of volunteers in the school holidays, are always popular and well attended.

Mary fully deserves her recognition as a Good Citizen of Coventry for her determination to support the children in Wyken.
