TWENTY Huddersfield youngsters are to enjoy a free five- day holiday in the Lake District to mark their voluntary work in the community.
The youngsters, aged about 15, have been nominated by their schools for a Personal Award for Excellence (PAWE).
The scheme was set up by West Yorkshire Police in Keighley 20 years ago and has been running in Huddersfield for 17.
Local youngsters will make up part of a 60-strong contingent from Huddersfield, Bradford and Keighley. They will enjoy five days of activities, based at Ambleside Youth Hostel.
A programme of events has been organised, including canoeing, orienteering, abseiling, barbecues, line dancing and quizzes.
The week culminates with an evening cruise and disco on a paddle steamer on Windermere.
Pc Glyn Butterworth, who organises the scheme, said: "PAWE is one of only a handful of schemes in the country that promotes and rewards positive behaviour and good citizenship."
