A GROUP of Redditch teenagers will be giving something back to the community at this year's Morton Stanley Festival.
The 15 to 17-year-olds, who have signed up to this year's Engage for Life course will be at the festival on Saturday (August 18) selling cakes, self-made music CDs and showcasing their circus skills.
The team, who were at Batchley Pool on Wednesday (August 15) for the latest street theatre event, will also display some of the outfits used in their very own fashion show and will be talking to young people about the programme.
The Government scheme, which runs for six weeks, involves a residential trip completing challenging activities, fun, games and skill development. The teenagers then go back to their community and meet with local organisations, sports clubs and art projects to try and help in anyway they can.
Kim Hardie, from Engage for Life, said: "The course brings young people together from different backgrounds, teaching them what it means to be responsible and serve their communities.
"Young people who take part get the chance to do outdoor activities, meet new people and put something back into their local community. It offers the chance to learn new skills and get experience that helps with CVs or college applications."
