Students make a difference in local community

Students taking part in national youth scheme with the Robins Foundation have come together to support local community organisations and charities.

As part of Bristol City Robins Foundation’s delivery of youth project, National Citizen Service (NCS), 96 students have taken part in various social action projects to help support the community.

The two-week project saw the group of students divided into eight smaller sub-teams where – as well as taking part in a number of team-building activities – the young people identified specific organisations and causes they would like to support.

Over the course of the project, the young people took part in a number of fundraising activities, ranging from walking the steps of Ashton Gate Stadium to completing a sponsored walk around Bristol. These activities raised more than £1000 for charities: Mind, Off The Record, Ronald MacDonald House and Square Food Foundation (pictured above).

In addition to this fundraising, the groups also worked to raise awareness for a number of important social issues and are currently in the process of putting together a number of videos to raise awareness for mental health and the impact of hate crimes in sport.

The good work of the young people did not however stop there, with the students also volunteering to help support local community football teams Nailsea and Hengrove Athletic by redecorating and restoring their facilities.

NCS Coordinator at the Robins Foundation, Carly Price, said: “I am so proud of all the amazing work that the young people have carried out during our NCS programme and it was a real privilege to work with such a motivated group of young people.

“Charities and community organisations are so important in our society and the last few months have been really tough on them, so it was great to see the young people identify these organisations and help support them during these difficult times.

“The young people have had such a positive impact on the community and I’m sure the legacy of their work will be felt for some time.”
