A group of Newydd Housing youths from Rhydyfelin in Pontypridd have been working with Fixers UK since December to create logos, a script and finally a short film in the theme of a dramatic movie trailer encouraging others to try and volunteer by showing the benefits of getting more involved in local communities.
The project came together through a Community Leaders programme run by Full Circle and Newydd and since taken off, has linked in to the youth groups Duke of Edinburgh Silver skill section.
I know the youths, along with myself are very pleased with the results and so would be a real shame to keep it to ourselves. Therefore we ask if you could help us promote this video in the hope that more people will step forward and become a volunteering superhero.
Thank you to Lisa Sheppard, Michael Doucas, Sam White, Father Michael Gable, Rick Newbury, PCSO Lisa Banfield, Ceri Morgans and all the Fixers for supporting their project.
