Tranmere Rovers and NCS are pleased to have their August participants finish their two week programme of workshops and social action plans, helping the local community in numerous meaningful ways.
It all started with an action packed week with the young people taking part in nutrients talks, yoga sessions, archery and team building sessions over in Liverpool and the army came to Prenton Park to put to them through their paces with army activities throughout the afternoon.
The second week known as Social Action week is designed to get the young adults thinking about their communities. They had debates about current topics, created campaigns about subjects such as mental health and racism and went out into the local community to complete a costal walk, beach clean up and raise money for local charities.Speaking with our NCS programme leader, Tom, about how the two weeks went.
“It’s been excellent, we had a new group on board for a two week programme, - they were all really enthusiastic and they really enjoyed themselves so it’s been great.”
“They’ve done a healthy eating workshop and a ‘cooking on a budget’ demonstration, where we tried some vegetable curry which was really nice! We also played some ultimate frisbee, did a stadium tour and finished off with some yoga and mindfulness.”
“They’ve been great to be honest with you, they all got one week together, made new friends and they all seem to be getting something from the programme which is exactly what it’s all about!”
It’s been another successful NCS programme and we look forward to welcoming a new group again in October for our Autumn programme,
