National Citizen Service helps youngsters understand The Peace Hospice's work
Students on the National Citizen Service programme are spending a challenging week finding out about the valuable work of The Peace Hospice.
Poster design, team building exercises and discovering ways to get involved with the hospice were just some of the activities for the teenagers.
The project, run in association with Watford Football Club Community Sports and Education Trust, provided the 15 youngsters with a valuable boost to their working futures and a greater understanding of their own community.
For the majority of the group, it was the first time they had stepped foot inside the Peace Hospice building.
The "Hair for Hospices" event planned during Hospice Care Week from October 7 - 13 grabbed the attention of many of the students. The week of activities includes the challenge of being able to cut, grow, colour and make your hair as " fab, funky and outrageous" as possible to raise funds for the hospice.
Sohail Khiliji, who attends Parmiter’s School, said: "I’m a Watford FC supporter and I’ve got a bright yellow Watford FC wig. I think I will wear it for Hospice Hair day."
Another student, Axcel Abouzakhar, said: "This is a really great place. I have walked past but didn’t really know about all the work involved here. I am surprised to find out about all the events at the Peace Hospice. There is so much going on and so many ways to get involved to support it."
