A group of teenagers on a Government holiday scheme to get them involved in the community and prepare them for work and university are doing their bit for charity in Sleaford.

The 16-17 years from the Sleaford area are part of the National Citizenship Service and they have already been on a residential trip to Nottingham University to improve their employment skills as well as a team-building week at PGL outdoor activity camp in Caythorpe.

They are now plannig community fundraising initiatives for LIVES and Sleaford Community Food Larder.

Ellie Rooke-Williams from the team said they will be raising money for LIVES on Monday from 9am-3pm on Sleaford Market Place, holding a cake sale stall and raising awareness of what the charity does.

They are also doing a bike-athon from 10am to 3pm outside Sleaford Leisure Centre on Tuesday for Sleaford LIVES group and the Community Larder, while again raising awareness.

On Wednesday the teenagers will be bag-packing at a local supermarket in aid of the Community Larder.
