Can they dig it...? Yes they can!

NCS Luton 'Team Jethro' came to support the 'Can You Dig It' project, down at Luton Hoo Memorial Garden, as part of the National Citizenship Service project.

With over 20 young people, aged 16-17 attending, the sun shone (mostly) and they were a massive help - weeding and planting new plants into the herbaceous border.

They all worked really hard, and helped out a huge amount, getting stuff done that would have taken the group so much longer without their support.

One of the particiants said:

It was a great day - I hadn't realised how stress relieving gardening can be


They have also been fundraising for us, getting around £443 for a bake sale, and over £200 for the event they created, supporting older people to come and enjoy tea, cake and company at our Luton Wellbeing Centre. 

A massive Thank You to all the NCS participants who have been involved with things over the summer.
