Young people in Redditch aim to make a difference by sleeping rough

Harry Leach 8th Aug, 2018

TWELVE Redditch youngsters are hoping to sleep outside Debenhams in the Kingfisher Centre on August 9 to raise awareness for the homeless.

The group are doing their National Citizens Service (NCS) in aid of the charity ‘Night Stop’ which works with people in Redditch to help them if they become homeless.

The NCS is a three to four week programme which enables young people aged 15 to 17 to make a difference and contribute to their local communities.

It is designed to be fun, but also to equip students with evidence of personal achievement and life skills.

Ella-May Todd, a member of the NCS, said: “We visited Night Stop on July 30 and the whole team became very inspired and extremely motivated to fundraise for them as we felt like they would benefit the most from our funds.

“We are looking forward to the challenge.”

The group were also in the Kingfisher Centre yesterday (August 7) to raise money for Cancer Research Uk and the Hospice Kemp.
