Pete Elkin

Young Persons’ Project Director

Hello there, I'm Pete, this year's Young Persons' Project Director. As Director, my job is to oversee recruitment, fundraising and delivery for the project. YPP recruits an entirely new team every year and raises over £10,000 to help sixty kids from Hartlepool and Sunderland realise they're great. My main focus is making sure the kids and the volunteers have the best time ever and look back on YPP as an absolutely class experience!

Aside from YPP, I'm a big fan of The West Wing and Global Warming. I also like to throw sharp, inanimate objects at a circular board made entirely of sisal fibres: having got quite good, I captained the mighty Mildert Darts Team to a trailblazing cup win.
