Last month our Caer Gwent nursing home received a helping hand from a group of 10 young Worthing volunteers.

The volunteers, all aged 16, spent all day on 24th August at Caer Gwent cleaning and repainting the home’s garden furniture and railings.

The help was set up by Concordia, an international Brighton-based charity. The students are all involved in its National Citizen Service (NCS) programme.

Kevin Burke, Caer Gwent Manager, said: “We’re really very grateful to all the volunteers who did a fantastic job improving the garden furniture which is regularly used by our residents. So, a big thank you from all of us.”

Fiona Callendar, Head of Volunteering at Concordia, said: “Concordia has been running NCS for many years - this year was an exceptional year in so many ways. We are pleased to be able to continue to ensure that young people are able to support their local community through projects like this one with Guild Care.”

Lila, one of the volunteers, said: “Our GSCEs got cancelled so it’s not been the best time for us, but it’s been nice for some of us to get back together again and I feel good giving something back to the community.”
