ETC TtW Operations Manager for the North Coast Toni Bellos said she was thrilled to have supported the event.
“Youth Week is an opportunity for young people to express their ideas and views, act on issues that affect their lives, and create and enjoy activities and events,” Ms Bellos said.
“Events such as CrankFest are a fantastic setting for young people to take advantage of these opportunities. It also gives us the chance to connect with and support the local youth.”

“I encourage local employers to come on board and help support our youth.”
