London Teens Wanted for Summer Break

Young Londoners are being offered the chance to spend two weeks away this summer, in return for helping out their community.

The National Citizen Service programme (NCS) is looking for 16 year olds (Year 11) to take part in an exciting new initiative kicking off next month.

The summer adventure includes outdoor pursuits (such as camping, kayaking and climbing), as well as personal and team development sessions.

Coordinator Leo Daniels of Leyton Orient Community Sports Programme says: ‘The NCS programme is a fun and exciting way to spend some of your summer holiday, and gives you the chance make new friends, develop yourself and give back to the community.’

While the standard price for the NCS experience is £100, participants are only required to pay only £50.

Individual circumstances will also be taken into consideration, so students facing financial difficulties can discuss their specific situations.

For more info, contact Leo on 0208 556 5973 /07534 262 498 or email leo.daniels@locsp.org

Below, Ian Wright explains why he supports the NCS programme

In Stockholm, go to the Vasa and Nobel Museums. They are hands down two fo the coolest mueumss I have EVER been to. I could have spent the whole day just wandering in each of them. Go to the palace and if you’re a student, ask for the student discount. When I went it was less than a dollar for admission. It was totally worth it too. I LOVE Stockholm. Just wander around there, it’s such a beautiful city you’ll probably just want to spend lots of time staring at it and being amazed.For London, I used to live there and could write a novel about the cool things you can see and do there. It’s hands down my very favourite city. For good pubs, I always ahd a good time at the Old Blue Last just off Old street in Hackney (I think). It’s a younger crowd, but I enjoyed it. For good foor, Pizza express can be found anywhere in the city and it’s decent enough. Be sure to eat Indian Food there too. I used to like getting my curry on Brick Lane (while there, check out the bagel bakery.I can’t remember the name, but it’s SO GOOD). My very favourite ice cream place in the city (well, gelato technically) is a little place on Charing Cross Rd. called Ciao! Gelateria. It has a giant ice cream cone outside and it’s right by Leicester Square. It’s easy enough to miss, but if you hapepn to see it, go inside. It’s totally worth it.
