Among the numerous Social Action Projects carried out by participants on our National Citizen Service Programme (NCS) this summer, one particular group showed tremendous versatility in splitting their time between two important local causes.
The youngsters got their hands, feet and clothes dirty for a day of maintenance at the William Sutton Memorial Hall, a local community centre in St Budeaux, as they set about a day of painting, gardening and general graft.
It was then time to emulate our Olympic heroes with a fun run through Central Park, raising money and awareness for the Dash of Silver charity, an organisation dedicated to helping fight cancer in men.
As part of NCS, participants are required to carry out 30 hours of voluntary work in their Social Action project, a great way to end a programme that included residential stays, outdoor activities and fantastic life experiences.
Plymouth Argyle Community Trust have spaces on the NCS programme in October. To find out more, please contact the NCS team of Dwain Morgan and Ryan Yeoman on 01752 562561 ext.4 or email firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
