Huntingdonshire Regional College students enjoyed archery, target-shooting and raft-building during a four-week programme aimed at boosting self confidence, teamwork and listening skills.

The project was supported by the Kick charity, which supports youngsters to make the transition to adulthood. Victoria Bartle, project co-ordinator, said: “It’s been fantastic to see their characters emerging and to see them learning new skills and through that increasing their confidence.

“They have worked on expanding their comfort zones and pushing their boundaries to reach new goals and achievements.”

The activities took place at Grafham Water and Huntingdon Youth Centre and the 12 students also attended workshops to achieve their Award Scheme Development Accreditation Network (ASDAN) qualification.

Kick is raising funds by taking part in the Pathfinder March, run by RAF Wyton on Saturday, June 20.
