Two Lancashire Volunteer Police Cadets have become ambassadors as part of the national Step Up To Serve campaign.

The Price of Wales, the patron of Step Up To Serve and the #iwill campaign, and Prime Minister David Cameron addressed young people involved in social action at an event in London to celebrate the first anniversary of the campaign.

Step Up To Serve aims to engage young people in social action through uniform youth groups such as the Volunteer Police Cadets.

The aim is that all young people should be a member of a uniformed youth group that engages in social action and that as adults they continue to volunteer in their communities.

Out of hundreds who applied, two Lancashire cadets were invited to the event to receive awards.

Sisters Sky and Emma Roberts, aged 16 and 14, are members of Lancashire VPC’s Lancaster unit.

The girls have both got involved as volunteers at a care home for the elderly and at a homeless centre.

Both did a sponsored walk for Leukaemia Research earlier this year raising much needed funds.

Chief Inspector Ian Sewart, who leads Lancashire Volunteer Police Cadets, said: “My sincere thanks and best wishes must go to Sky and Emma, who have represented Lancashire Constabulary so well.”
