A GROUP of 10 youngsters (all aged 16) and two mentors have partnered with the Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) to spread awareness to all in Bradford, especially teenagers, as the charity believes it needs more support from the younger generation.

There will be a sponsored litter pick in Lister Park on Wednesday (11am-5:30pm), while there will be various games and activities, such as face painting, all day in the Broadway on Friday.

Meanwhile, this Saturday, there will be a campaign day at Airobounce Trampoline Park in the City Centre, which will see a treasure hunt game for the public, between 12:30pm and 3pm.

Participants will gain new knowledge about the YAA service and will also get a chance to win a prize for taking part.

One of those involved, Alisha Shehzadi, from the National Citizens Service, explained: “Anyone can come along but we are targeting young people as the YAA want their support and to recruit more of them.

“We partnered with them for the first time last week and we’ve got to know more about them. It’s quite interesting."

The group will also be doing a radio interview with BCB News this Thursday at 11.45am.
