Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation NCS wave one participants complete their programme following their social action work in week two.
After heading back from the mountains of Helveylln, where they completed activities such as gorge scrambling, kayaking and mountain walking, our wave one contingent started work on their social action pitches as they looked to improve the lives of the community.
Split into two different groups, they set off to help out at our community partners, Appletree Allotments and St. Catherine’s Church, where they undertook some gardening activities, looking to improve the district’s surroundings.
After spending time off site on Tuesday and Wednesday, participants searched for ways to raise funds for those who they had helped over the past couple of days, working on their social action projects before putting their plans into action on the final day.
The enjoyment didn’t stop there, however, as they completed their final section of the programme, go party.
This is where we, as a club, celebrate all their achievements, whether it is hard work, pushing themselves out of their comfort zone or confidence building, followed by a disco put on in the Rollin’ Shack bar.
Speaking on the success of the last two weeks, the Foundation’s Head of Education & Training, Luke Shale, said, “We are delighted with the way that our participants have really come of their shell and applied themselves over the course of the programme.
“To stage the first Wakefield Trinity residential trip was really special and I hope all of the young people got something out of the past fortnight.
“We can’t wait to carry this on when wave two starts in a week’s time.”
