National Citizen Service (NCS)

The NCS have been working with us over the past couple of weeks and it has been a great experience.

The group started by visiting Waverley Hall to find out more about what Mencap in Kirklees do and to learn more about learning disabilities. The group used this experience to plan and hold a workshop for our members. The workshop was for our annual Christmas card competition and although we are only in July, our members really got into the festive spirit.

The NCS found a sponsor to pay for the printing of the cards and raised further funds to pay for the craft goods needed. The group raised over £400 and the remainder of this will come straight to us to use for our social groups.

It has been a pleasure working with the group who showed great enthusiasm, willingness to learn and professionalism.
