TEENAGERS in Deeping St James have been giving up their summer holidays to help good causes.
As part of the Nation Citizenship Service scheme nine 16 and 17 year-olds have been gardening, painting fences and litter-picking.
Anna Howlett, the group’s mentor, said: “Teenagers get a lot of bad press.
“I think this just shows that the majority of them aren’t that bad.
“They all wanted to do their bit for the community. None of them have moaned, even when they’ve had to start work at seven in the morning.
Over the coming weeks the group will be volunteering even more of their time.
