Lucy's NCS Photo

Lucy, a member of our congregation at Halmer End, has recently been on a National Citizen Service (NCS) programme. The programme is for young people aged 15-17 and is intended to develop individual and team-working skills. There is a particular emphasis on community work.

Lucy's course included a residential week at Condover Hall, Shrewsbury, which was based on physical challenges such as high ropes, archery, water sports and abseiling.

A second residential week was spent at Keele University developing communication skills, which included interviewing techniques and team building exercises. The week also included a first aid course.

The programme concluded with a three week community project for a local Food Bank based in a Church. Lucy learned about the management of the Food Bank, did some bag-packing at a supermarket to raise money and helped to serve people at an open Food Bank session.

Lucy was presented with a National Citizen Service certificate signed by the RT Hon David Cameron MP Prime Minister.
