A group of teenagers from Dacorum and surrounding areas will be spreading their anti-human trafficking message to Hemel Hempstead with a series of flashmobs.

The surprise bursts of performance will take place in the town centre on Saturday, in order to raise awareness of the teens’ campaign, Attacking Human Trafficking, organised through the National Citizen Service scheme.

Team member Reuben Edwards Amuah, 16, from Hemel Hempstead, said: “Through our social action project we will improve our community and inspire them and others to do more. With NCS you can accomplish much more than just helping a community, you can add a new element to it. I hope through our work we can inspire others to have their own amazing journey.”

They have also raised money for the charity Human Trafficking Foundation through a 24-mile sponsored walk and a photography exhibition at Tring’s Temperance Hall with the theme ‘27’ – as it is estimated 27 million people are trapped in the global trafficking system.
