This week we welcomed thirteen NCS students

After our presentation the NCS students were partically excited about supporting local children and families

Their busy week with us began with a planning morning on Tuesday. In the afternoon they helped us by being extras for our film about our ‘ Sponsored Kindness Project’

It was wonderful to find out that one of the students families had used Home-Start Watford and Three Rivers a number of years ago as his mum needed support. His mum needed support as he was a twin , he said:

‘My mum said her volunteer used to help her with things like shopping as in those days the trollies didn’t have

double spaces for the babies to fit into!’

On Wednesday the students helped at our last stay and play group of the year organising activities for the families

On Thursday the students got involved in a ‘Community Fun Day’, they played games with families , did face painting and dressed up as our bear!!!

Friday the students organised a sponsored bike ride around Cassiobury Park and managed to raise £95 in sponsorship

We would like to thank the team and the NCS team for their help during the week and look forward to seeing them helping at events soon
