Teens help Leeds Children’s Charity give Lineham Farm a new look through NCS programme

Young people taking part in this summer’s National Citizen Service (NCS) programme with Leeds Rhinos Foundation have been taking an active role in helping the community get back on its feet by carrying out voluntary gardening work with Leeds Children’s Charity at Lineham Farm.

The group of 15 and 16-year-olds spent last week offering vital support by rejuvenating the Farm’s woodland areas and also creating a path for visitors to access a new covered firepit area.

Dave Norman MBE, Director of Leeds Children’s Charity at Lineham Farm said: “Thanks to the young people the area looks much better, but more importantly the trees that were in danger will now survive and thrive.

“The group worked very hard; they were always cheerful, even in the wind and the rain and they did not stop until the tasks were complete. It was a pleasure having them on site. Well done and thank you.”
