The team of 15 to 17-year-olds from Worthing and surrounding area wanted to raise money to help veterans lead a better life.

Issy Harris, 15, explained: “We chose Care for Veterans as we felt passionately about helping our veterans with a life outside of conflict, and wanted to help the charity to continue its work towards a better life for the veterans they care for.”

The group hosted a quiz night at Worthing Leisure Centre at the end of July. It was a great success and the group has raised £370 so far.

Issy added: “Thank you to everyone who came to the quiz night to support us and helped us to raise this fantastic amount of money.”

The National Citizen Service is a four-week programme that helps young people build skills for life, while taking on new challenges and meeting new people.
