The group of six teenagers, all aged between 15 and 17, recently spent a week sorting out the gardens at St James’ Rectory in Louth - digging up weeds, removing debris, and making the area look nice so that it can be used for community events.
On Monday last week, the group had held a tombola and cake sale at the local Co-op, and raised £125, which was donated to St Andrew’s Hospice.
Prior to this, the group enjoyed a team-building week at PGL, and a week at Nottingham University gaining confidence, skills, and enhancing their CVs.
Other groups will be based in Louth later this summer.
NCS Mentor Katie Smith, 21, told the Leader: “Thank you to the Louth community and businesses who donated prizes for the tombola, and the Co-op for hosting us; they are always extremely helpful.
“This group has achieved a lot this summer, and I would 100 per cent recommend young people and potential mentors join the scheme.”
• There is still time to take part in the scheme. The cost is no more than £50 (and could be less or free depending on your circumstances). Visit www.ncsyes.co.uk for more.
