MoD commits to keeping costs down on HMS Queen Elizabeth and F-35s

Have your say

TEENAGERS who wheeled up and down the seafront raised more than £500 for Portsmouth-based disability support group Enable Ability.

Inspired by the Paralympics, the youngsters clocked up more than 170 miles along Southsea seafront – the distance from Motiv8 to the Olympic Stadium and back.

They came up with the idea as part of four-week government incitive, National Citizen Service, which they took part in at Motiv8 – an organisation which teaches young people vital life skills.

The NCS aims to get young people more involved with their community. The teenagers will present the cash to the charity at a ceremony tomorrow evening.
