NCS Spring finished up with an amazing Graduation dinner on the 8th of May. The staff and participants celebrated with a 3 course meal and then presented the social action project they had created to family and friends.
The team had chosen to support a charity called Launchpad (www.launchpadreading.org.uk) who work with homeless people in Reading. They collected over £200 bag packing at ASDA and raised awareness in central Reading for the charity by handing out information and speaking with different people about their perceptions of homelessness. The team all spoke about the skills they gained over the programme including communication, project and time management- while they balanced the programme and their exam preparation! The teams project is still continuing with loads more ideas and plans and you can donate to Launchpad via their just giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/key-change
The staff were all incredibly impressed with how the team worked together and how well they got on despite only meeting each other a few weeks ago. All of them have made lifelong friends and we look forward to seeing what they do next!
