Young people with a heart for the community in Spalding have raised over £700 for charity.
Two groups of 16 and 17-year-olds taking part in the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme had the opportunity to use the life skills they have learned to support two charities for autistic and needy people.
One of the groups spent four days in Spalding town centre raising awareness and cash for Welcome2OurWorld, a Wisbech-based charity which supports children with autism and their families.
The youngsters met with shoppers while wearing fancy dress, including a number of animal outfits, and collected about £350 through a tombola, cake sale, street collections and online donations.
The other group presented just over £380 to Agapecare Foodbank Spalding after organising a cake stall, sponsored walk, car wash and other activities, alongside a donation of tinned food.
NCS team member Emily Morgan said: “I would definitely recommend it because you get to meet amazing people and make friends while being there.”
