Community-minded youngsters across the region are preparing to make a real difference in the areas they live, following the official launch of the 25th annual Lifestyle Project earlier this month.

Run by Humberside Police, the event will see thousands of youngsters aged between 10-16-years-old throughout the East Riding, Hull and North and North East Lincolnshire team up with friends and get involved in projects this summer to help their local communities.

Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner, Matthew Grove, said: “We have many young people in this area who we can be rightly proud of, and Lifestyle is a fantastic example of how young people make a positive contribution to their community, build relationships and improve their own skills.”

Over the coming weeks, the Lifestyle team will be busy delivering DVDs and T-shirts and a host of promotional material in preparation for Neighbourhood Policing Teams to present Lifestyle schools throughout the region.

The first 4,000 to register will receive a free Lifestyle 2013 shirt and each team will receive a project pack containing all of the information needed for a successful summer. To register, log onto www.humberside.police.uk/lifestyle, or for further information and a registration form contact the Lifestyle team on 01482 220700.
