ANY organisations that have young volunteers are being urged to take part in a video.

The Hartlepool Community Network is looking for a team of people aged 18 to 25 to help make a pilot video about the role of young people in Hartlepool. They want to attract young people who are involved in volunteering, politics or youth work. No previous experience is necessary and by taking part, volunteers will learn how to use video equipment. Anyone who would like to take part is asked to contact Pamela Hargreaves, at Hartlepool Voluntary Development Agency, on (01429) 262641.
