Grantham Journal letter: We SHOULD use National Citizen Service

Have your say

With reference to Nick Boles’ article in last week’s Journal, reference the National Citizen Service, last August at ChristChurch, Finkin Street, a group of local young people redecorated our church parlour.

Their enthusiasm and committment were most commendable and our church members were most impressed.

Another group came in March using our premises as a base, and raised a generous donation for the mental health charity, Mind.

We are expecting another group to come this summer to complete a similar task. There were two other projects also carried out by groups last summer in Grantham.
I would encourage other groups to contact the Education Business Partnership, National Citizen Service, details of which were in Mr Boles’article (EMP: 01522 574100).
