A PRINCE’S Trust Team in Worthing has raised hundreds of pounds by carrying out a sponsored walk and bag packing session.

The team of 15 young people walked from Worthing Pier to the Sea Lane Café and back – a distance of 6.4 miles – and helped shoppers pack up their groceries in Marks & Spencer. In total they raised £368.

The young people are all unemployed and are taking part in the Prince’s Trust team’s 12-week employability programme to help them gain the skills and confidence to find a job.

Prince’s Trust assistant Indi Plummer said: “They would like to thank the generous sponsorship from friends, family and the local community. The bag pack was also a fantastic day, with very generous donations from the public.”

She also thanked Marks & Spencer for hosting the team.

The money raised went towards a community project consisting of painting and clearance at the Sydney Walter centre and hosting activities for residents of Rosemary Mount care home, in Chesswood Road, Worthing,
