Our annual visit from the young generation

Every year we welcome a new group from the NCS Challenge, a national summer programme for local 15-17 year olds inspiring them to help and engage with their community.

This year's group started off shy, but soon relaxed at Kingston Eco-Op and got to know our clients. They learnt about our project and devised an activity day that would be enjoyable to our members. They also arranged a fundraising day where they would spread awareness about our project and point to our current appeal: https://localgiving.org/appeal/kingstonecoop-sponsorship/ (please help us reach our target of £1200!)

Today we had a whole lot of fun for the final day! There was a bubble machine, cakes, mug painting, canvas art, chess tournaments, and a raffle with prizes. Do you like our canvas picture, created by clients and NCS members painting together?

A big thank you to NCS The Challenge and we can't wait to have you back again next year. Our older generation certainly enjoy the younger community experience!
