Over the last few weeks many young people (16-17 years old) from the National Citizen Service have been raising money for Catching Lives as part of their social action project which tackles with a local issue they’re passionate about.
One such team (NCS Wave 3 Team 3) held an event on 25th August at St Thomas’ Church Hall, Canterbury and sold home made cakes as well as books, dvds and bric a brac. They raised an incredible £145 on the day.
The team said, “We really wanted to support Catching Lives as we saw firsthand what help they provided to homeless people in Canterbury. It took just under two weeks to organise our event, including a bake sale, raffle and arts & crafts stall. We are happy to have contributed towards the charity and their work in the future.”
We send our thanks to Team 3 (and all at NCS) for their brilliant work raising money for us, and as importantly vital awareness about the issues of homelessness in our community.
