National Citizen Service Partnership

Yard Sale - Stainbeck Community Hall
Yard Sale – Stainbeck Community Hall

This Summer has seen our 3rd partnership with a team taking part in the National Citizen Service.

The project aims to encourage young people aged 15 – 17 get involved in volunteering, build their own skills & confidence and work with a local community organisation to raise awareness and take on a day of social action.

This year Team Emeke visited us at our swimming session to find out about what Sunshine & Smiles does, learn more about our families and think of ways that they could help us.

We then had a planning meeting where we decided on the social action day to help us clear out our loft at Stainbeck Community Hall, tidy up the garden and hold a yard sale and some activities in the garden.

We had a really good clear out & tidy up and the team raised £100 from the Yard Sale which is fantastic!

Their last day was raising awareness & campaigning in the city centre which they did by handing out Sunshine & Smiles stickers, wearing our distinctive t-shirts and talk to people about the work we do!

Thank you Team Emeke and the National Citizen Service!
