A RAVING group of girls will be bringing the party to the streets of Evesham when they take part in a 24 hour ‘silent rave’ for charity.

The team of partygoers aged 15 to 17-years-old, will dance away from 10am on Saturday August, 29 to 10am Sunday August 30, for Acorns Children’s Hospice Trust.

Starting in the town’s Market Square, the girls will walk through the streets with donation buckets, inviting anyone who wishes to join them to grab their headphones and preferred choice of music in an effort to raise funds for the cause.

The team are members of the National Citizen Service – a scheme powered by Engage4Life – allowing young people to face their fears, meet new friends and make a difference in the community.

Event organiser, Faith Williamson said: “I am currently taking part in NCS to help raise funds for charity and take part in fun events.

“Having spent a week on a residential trip getting to know other NCS participants through a variety of team building exercises and a week of hard work and thorough planning, it is our turn to do something different.

“The silent rave will move to an inside location between 11pm and 5am, but we will either live stream our rave or film it overnight to upload the next day.”

So far the team have managed to raise more than £570, reaching their target of £500 in just over two days.
