A group of six teenagers have been praised for volunteering and fundraising at a charity shop on the High Street this week, as part of The National Citizen Service youth programme.

The group of six, aged between 15 - 17, who live in the area, were set the task of organising an event for the community and helping out in the Sense shop, which raises money to support people with complex disabilities.

Half the group raised £80 when they set up a lemonade and cake stall as well as a chanllenge to guess the correct number of sweets in a jar, while the other group priced and displayed stock in the shop.

Beth Evans, assistant shop manager for the Sense shop said: “The group were brilliant.

“They were all really engaged, polite, helpful and great company. Six of the group want to come and volunteer with us during the summer holidays which is fantastic.

“It was a day where they learned new skills and made a difference.”
