Bourne Academy pupils in National Citizen Service programme to host fitness challenge at The Universal Fitness Centre in Cherry Holt Road, Bourne
A group of sixth formers has created one-minute fitness challenges for a social action project.
In the summer holidays, a number of Bourne Academy pupils in Year 11 and 12 are taking part in a two-week summer programme with the National Citizen Service (NCS).
The Government-funded scheme designed to help young people develop new skills, improve confidence and help pupils become more independent and responsible citizens.
This summer, sixth formers Matthew Hay, Archie Arnold and Kameron Dowse are making a difference in the Bourne community with a social action project to raise money for the Evie Dove Foundation. The charity was created in memory of Evie, who died at just 13 from a rare brain tumour, to support lives by sponsoring the further education of paediatric medical professionals.
Matthew Hay, year 12 student at Bourne Academy said "We have decided to support the Evie Dove Foundation as we believe every child should be able to reach their dream career path no matter their background or financial status."
As a team, they have devised a series of fitness and wellbeing challenges to see how many push-ups, pull ups, sit-ups, burpees or punches on a bag can be done in one minute.
With Archie and Kameron both studying sport and physical activity at Bourne Academy's sixth form they have used their subject knowledge when creating the challenges.
The charity event will be held at The Universal Fitness Centre in Cherry Holt Road, Bourne on Thursday next week (August 11) from 12pm to 4pm and the pupils are inviting the community to take part.
It will cost £2 per challenge.
