YOUNGSTERS from Blacon took part in a trip to Rowen Youth Hostel, Conwy.
The group, all working with the charity Catch 22 in Blacon, wrote an application for funding to the Youth Opportunities Fund and received £1,000 for their visit.
They added to this total by doing some fundraising to raise the overall target of £1,350.
During their three-day stay in North Wales they cooked and cleaned for each other and took part in challenging activities including caving and a high ropes course.
The residential experience helped the group to achieve their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
