SELFLESS teenagers from across Wiltshire are doing all they can to help raise money for local causes with a series of fundraising activities.

Over the last four weeks, eight groups of youngsters that have signed up to the National Citizen Service are taking part in a social action project where they raise funds for the likes of Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Teenage Cancer Trust and the Storehouse Foodbank in Trowbridge.

On Monday, the eighth team, who are trying to raise £1,500 for Wiltshire Air Ambulance, did a bucket collection in The Shires to bring their total past the £500 mark. They were also planning a bag pack at Asda and a pub quiz.

Kacey Stevenson, 16, of Trowbridge, said: "I am really enjoying this project and raising money for some good causes. This charity does not get government funding and it helps so many people so I am happy we are helping them."

Marika Cagilba, 16, of Trowbridge added: "I am very grateful that I can do this project. We are all bonding really well and having a good time raising money for charity."

Another group chose to do a sleepout in aid of the foodbank from 7pm-7am with nothing but a sleeping bag and cardboard on Monday night, raising £320 in the process.

Other groups have organised pub quizzes, bingo nights, movie nights and much more.
