Didcot TRAIN Youth Project

Young people running to the rescue...

It was brilliant to be informed over the Summer (2019) by a member of the public that 3 young people regularly engaging with TRAIN had been noticed running to help an old man that had fallen down in the Orchard Centre. Having broken his nose and cut open his hand, the young people had helped him up, phoned an ambulance, bought him baby wipes and water using their own money, then found his daughter and waited for the paramedics with them both.

The inclination of the young people to support in the way that they did in this circumstance is fantastic. Their actions demonstrate their appreciations of the value in acting kindly towards others, even when not known to them – values addressed throughout the group mentoring sessions they regularly attend, by educating on the importance of respecting peers and the community through both behaviour and speech. All three should all be incredibly proud of themselves!
