A team of 15 Thanet youngsters are holding fundraising events this week for Diversity UK.
The group, aged between 15 and 17, will complete a sponsored walk tomorrow (July 27) undertaking a stretch of just under 12K along the Viking Coastal Trail.
On Thursday (July 28) the teens are hosting a children’s activity day at Margate Caves.
The event runs from noon until 4.30pm and is open to the public. Tickets are £3, children aged 4 and under get in for free.
The events are part of the National Citizen Service Summer 2022 Programme.
Team Member Charlotte Roberts, 17, from Westgate, said: “For our social action project we are doing a sponsored walk on Wednesday and a small children’s activity day at Margate Caves on Thursday.
“We are raising money and awareness for Diversity UK which is an equality charity that aims to research, advocate and promote ideas for improving diversity and inclusion in Britain.
“We chose Diversity UK because we wanted a charity that includes everyone as we are a pretty diverse group. Not only is it a cause we all believe in but something we feel represents us as a young group of people and what we would like to see more of in the world and our future.”
