Teenagers involved in the National Citizen Service in Letchworth have organised a charity quiz and raffle night for Carers in Hertfordshire.

NCS brings teenagers together for a four-week course, which involves teambuilding activities, residential trips and a community project.

One Letchworth team have been working to secure venues and designing posters – with the end goal of raising money for the charity, which provides support to unpaid carers across the county.

Team member Rebekah Timms said: “My group and I chose this charity because of the great support they provide, especially to young people.

“We recognise its impact as it currently supports a number of our team members. We also wanted to have a positive impact on our local community,
