A group of 16 and 17-year-olds from Grantham have spent their summer holidays giving back to the community on the National Citizen Service (NCS) youth programme.

The group of 14, who met for the first time just three weeks ago, worked together to create their own social action project using the skills they’d developed on the programme.

The group chose to dedicate their project to PDSA and Special Olympics by hosting a family fun day at Wyndham Park, raising more than £800 by hosting a raffle, face painting, old-fashioned games and family activities at the park.

Jade-Amelia Harrington-Moore, 16, from Grantham said: “I loved the first week of NCS, we went canoeing, rock climbing and did archery – I even learned how to build a shelter and a fire. Meeting new people has massively boosted my confidence; I’ve learned about team work and trust and made new friends.

“This week we have been raising money for charity and our family fun day has been really fun and rewarding. I would definitely recommend NCS to other teenagers, you get loads of new experiences and do things you’d not normally get chance to do.”
