"I was greatly impressed by what I saw at The Junction when I visited it at their Open Day. The building seemed in the same good condition that it was when I went to the opening many years ago, and I was impressed by the wide variety of activities that I saw. There was an internet cafe on the ground floor, where clients could get details of jobs that were available, and professional help on completing their CVs There was a project to encourage young people to volunteer, to give them the skills which they need to add value to the many volunteering projects in and around the town; and there was an impressive facility whereby those who worked for the project were themselves trained so they were up to speed in a wide variety of disciplines such as Health and Safety and First Aid. I also got an insight into the project that encourages young people to abandon drugs and the whole building was alive with enthusiasm and commitment." The Junction is part of the Foyer Project, and many of the clients live at Sarum House in Winchester Road or Oasis House in Romsey. Sir George discussed with those who run the project, the financial challenges that confront them, and offered to help in any way that he could.
