YOUNGSTERS brought cheer to people at a hospice day care centre with a host of activities.

Fourteen people aged between 16 to 25 from the Prince’s Trust Programme, based at Highbury College, Portsmouth, gave day care patients at The Rowans Hospice three days of fun-filled activities, laughs and entertainment, with an Easter theme.

The team voted to support the Purbrook hospice as their final community project.

Hospice activities leader Linda Driver said: ‘It was a really enjoyable three days and we loved having the Prince’s Trust team here.

‘Their enthusiasm and the skills they showed while with us will also stand them in good stead for the future.’

Day care patient Dorothy Butler appreciated their help.

She said: ‘I found their visit very uplifting.

‘Young people get a lot of bad press, but this team weren’t thinking of themselves, they were putting others first.

‘They made me feel at ease and talked about what they enjoy doing.’
