As students count down the days until schools close for the summer holidays, Humberside Police are challenging thousands of young people aged between 10 and 16 to team up with up to five friends and decide upon a project to benefit their local communities.
The Humberside Police Lifestyle project has been operating for 25 years and over this time Lifestylers have worked more than 2.5 million hours.
The project has attracted more than 151,000 participants - all working towards improving the quality of life in the area they live.
Local police are currently making appointments in schools across Humberside to present the Lifestyle project to students in assemblies. There are fantastic prizes lined up for those who take part. The overall winners of Lifestyle will win a holiday of a lifetime to Florida and runners up will receive adventure holidays to France including two days at Disneyland Paris.
Other prizes include PGL adventure holidays in Wales, ‘Hot Rides’ at Silverstone, days out to Alton Towers and Flamingo Land plus lots of smaller prizes. Lifestyle is proudly supported by BP in this landmark year.
Malcolm Joslin said, “Teams are coming together now who will make a real difference to their communities over the next couple of months – maybe even changing people’s lives.
“I know that they are going to have a great time and we wish them every success over the summer.
One of the Driffield area teams is ‘Queen of Hearts baked some tarts’ who are doing a bake sale for the elderly. Team members are Issie Balthazar, Ellie Buxton, both aged 11, Romily Garland-Collins, Sophie Heatley and Chloe Rooms, all aged 10.
The Barmston Bairns, Keiran Ellis (11), Hannah (14) and Amy Riley (11) are aiming to tidy Barmston and undertake fund raising for people with Autism.
