Young people aged 8 to 16 in Bradley Stoke are being invited to earn rewards by taking part in a community project over the summer holidays.

The Dreamscheme programme is a youth volunteering scheme that gets young people involved in their community and rewards them with points that can be used for trips or rewards.

WORK = POINTS = REWARDS (1 hour = 10 points)
