NCS summer 2019 was our biggest yet

We have had an incredibly busy summer this year with our NCS volunteer projects. This year we welcomed over 122 young people to Hull Homeless as part of their social action projects with Tigers Trust and Hymers College for NCS – National Citizen Service.

These amazing young people gave us an incredible 3,660 hours of volunteering over the course of eight weeks, supporting the adults, families, and children we work with. From transforming gardens, decorating new homes, supporting our summer breakfast club for children, raising awareness, collecting supplies, food and organising sponsored events to raise money to help us buy back to school items for children in low income or destitute households.

We absolutely love being part of the NCS programme each summer. Special thanks to Tigers Trust and Hymers college for having us along for the ride again this year.

Well done to the hundreds of young people who took part in NCS across the region this year.

Eastfield primary school walks Humber Bridge for HHCP

In July, the year 5 children at Eastfield primary school were busy collecting sponsors in their bid to walk across the Humber Bridge in aid of Hull Homeless.

We were invited into school to talk to the children about our work with vulnerable and at-risk families and children in Hull. We spoke about how we support them to avoid or escape homelessness and how we help them to achieve and maintain independence.

We could not miss the opportunity to spend the day with the children walking across the Humber bridge with the children and teachers. They were all absolute sweethearts, and all made it across, even those who were scared of heights.

Each class walked across the bridge separately while the other classes visited the fishing heritage museum. Our founder and CEO walked across the bridge and back with each and every class throughout the whole day, it was a very hot and sunny day, thankfully they had plenty of water and sun cream.

The whole year group enjoyed a picnic on the grass at the country park for lunch.

After the walk and all the sponsorship was collected in the children managed to raise over £1400!

Thank you to all the children, parents, and staff at Eastfield Primary for their kindness and amazing effort in helping us to support children in need across Hull.
