NCS CHALLENGE VOLUNTEERS AUGUST 2018

Cyrenians have recently received a help again from NCS Challenge, the National Citizen Service for 15-17 year olds.  It gives young people a chance to increase their confidence and skills and is something to put on their CV and also helps give them more of an insight about university.

The group came to one of our hostels for the homeless on 1st August 2018.  They spent the day with James Forsyth (Team Manager), Richard Fuller (Senior Maintenance Worker) and they were joined by various other Support Workers from the Coventry Supported Accommodation Service. The group managed to totally transform the garden in just 4 hours.

We also received positive feedback from the residents with one informing us that the garden has never looked so good!!
