A team of students who received their GCSE results from Woldgate School last month will hold a family fun day to raise money for homeless people.

The group of 16 students are taking part in the National Citzen Service and are holding the family fun day as part of their social action project.

There will be ice cream stalls, a petting zoo, live performances, a bouncy castle and activies for children like football and running races.

Roary the Tiger from Hull City Football Club will also be about on the day.

Lizzie Snook, one of the team members, said: “We decided we wanted to help people in our community. We wanted to know where our money was going so we are going to fill rucksacks with food and other essentials which can be handed out.”

The group has teamed up with Hull Homeless Community Project who have the connections to be able to make the group’s idea possible.

As part of their National Citizen Service the group won a competition and were awarded with vouchers to popular restaurant Nando’s which they decided to also donate to the charity.

Lizzie added: “We see homelessness if we visit York or Hull and it’s something that is quite close to us. The charity have been so supportive and they are very grateful for what we are doing.”

The event will take place at West Green on Sunday September 25 from 11am and entry is free.

Any donations of warm clothes such as hats, scarves and gloves, tinned food and hygiene products such as 
shampoo and conditioner, will be gratefully received.
