Half a dozen young people from the Cardiff branch of the Victory Youth Group (VYG) were out on the streets of Roath, north east Cardiff, recently, as part of the group’s annual We Care! – Youth Engagement day. This is when VYG’s 15-24 year olds help to tackle environmental tasks in their communities, often in association with the local authorities.
In Roath, however, VYG worked alongside Keep Roath Tidy, a community group that comes together every Saturday morning to give back to its community, and on this occasion, the task confronting them was litter picking.
Each VYG member was paired with an experienced Keep Roath Tidy volunteer, which turned the morning into a lovely way to meet new people as well as a service to the community.
