Northampton MP Visits Youth Helping Hands Project

Youth and leaders from the Northampton area of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gathered together on a recent Saturday morning to take part in a Helping Hands day of service at Bradlaugh Fields and Barn. Northampton North MP Michael Ellis came along to support the young men, aged 14–18 years, with their project.

Northampton congregations hosted an annual conference for youth aged 14-18 years, who gathered from Northampton and surrounding areas. During the morning session of conference, the youth took part in a service project to help in the Northampton local community, with around 100 youth and leaders working at Bradlaugh Fields and Barn, Northampton. The youth and leaders tidied up garden areas, painted railings in the park, formed a new compost area next to the barn and also did some general clearing.

One of the youth leaders commented, “Our youth always amaze me at how much they accomplish in a short time. They work so hard and find joy in helping each other and making a difference to other people’s lives.”
