A team of young people have raised hundreds of pounds for a homeless shelter in Leeds.

Teenagers enrolled in the National Citizen Service initiative - based at the Cardigan Centre in Headingley - took part in a series of fundraising activities to raise more than £620 for homeless shelter Streetwise.

They organised sponsored car washes and three-legged races as part of their fundraising drive.

The cash will go towards buying a new cooker for the charity which is based in Crown Point.

Currently, volunteers from Streetwise have to pay for transportation fees to travel to Bradford in order to cook a meal before travelling back to Leeds to serve the homeless.
