Teenagers taking part in the National Citizens Service, which is a four week government funded programme for 15 – 17 year olds who have just finished their GCSE’s, held a charity cake bake at the Youth Day at Happy Valley in Crewkerne. The NCS fundraising group Looking for Treble are hoping to create a music/sensory garden for the childrens ward at Yeovil Hospital. The teenagers are raising money to provide musical instruments for the children and are also in the process of making a large PVC pipe organ with materials that have been kindly donated by Bradfords and Monk Woodworking.
Youngsters in the childrens ward at Yeovil Hospital received a special visit from two of the NCS girls, when they called in to see them and sang songs accompanied by guitar playing. It was a heart warming moment to finish off the groups planning for next weeks charity drive. Looking for Treble would love to hear from anyone who would like to donate a musical instrument. The group can be contacted through their Facebook page and will be out and about across South Somerset in the coming weeks.
