 Year 11 students offered 'chance of a lifetime' this summer

A 'life-changing' opportunity of outdoor action and creativity is being offered to Year 11 students who want to make their neighbourhoods better.

Environmental charity Groundwork Thames Valley is recruiting students from Windsor and Maidenhead, Slough and South Bucks to spend four weeks with them this summer.

The programme, which is part of the Government's National Citizen Service, starts with one week at Longridge Activity Centre, near Marlow, taking part in dragon boat racing, abseiling and other team-building exercises.

The second week will be spent sailing the Grand Union Canal and sleeping in tepees at Iver Environmental Centre.

The final two weeks consists of more creative activities working on their own project to enhance their community.

The project would normally cost £1,500 but is being run for just a £50 contribution per person, after being subsidised by the Office for Civil Society and the Department for Education.
