A chance for teens to enjoy half-term break


Parents in the Horncastle area interested in seeing their teenager build confidence, make new friends and develop important life skills are encouraged to get their child to sign up for the National Citizen Service (NCS) Autumn 2015 programme - before it’s too late.

Starting on October 23 – the first day of October half term – autumn’s programme will include a four-day stay at an outdoor adventure centre, complete with activities like rock-climbing and archery.

They will also spend three days working with local businesses to improve employability skills - along with completing a social action project during which teens will give back to their communities by volunteering and fundraising.

Thanks to government funding, the programme costs no more than £35, including all activities, food, transport and three nights of accommodation.

Bursaries are available on a case-by-case basis and support can be provided for young people with additional needs.

Phil Everett, Communications Manager for NCS EM1, commented: “There’s less than a month left to go until the start of our autumn programme, so any parents that want to see their teen take part in this once-in-a-lifetime experience should register interest before it’s too late.

“There’s really no better way to spend £35 this October. A family trip to the cinema can cost more than it does to spend four days away from home where they’ll be making new friends and completing new challenges.”
