National Citizen Service Volunteers

The National Citizen Service is a government backed opportunity to develop work and life skills for 15 to 17 years olds. The projects take place in the local Community outside of term time.

Recently Syston Town Council had 17 NCS volunteers for two weeks assisting with tasks on the parks and helping out at the allotments. Making a scarecrow for the allotments was one of their projects.

During those two weeks they organised a sponsored bike ride, a bake off and a small fete on Central Park. Many retailers helped out by giving fantastic prizes for their tombola. They raised in the region of £1,300 in total for a local charity.
