Giving £920,000 to charity

At the Solent Youth Action trustees meeting tonight, one interesting fact-let that got noted was that young people have volunteered over 172,000 hours in SYA projects and activities since we started.

I’m not normally a fan of endless statistics, but I thought this was an interesting one.

172,000 hours


7,167 days
(more if you consider ‘working days’)


nearly 20 years

Or… if you consider their time worth at least the minimum wage, then


(Okay, so many of the young people we work with are too young to be elegible for the full £5.35 minimum wage but humour me – I’m playing with numbers. 🙂 )

Wow, that’s pretty cool. 😀
