A group of young people from Gloucestershire are organising two events in the space of 24 hours for the charity Mind.
The group of 13 teenagers aged between 15 and 17 are spending the summer working with the National Citizens Service scheme in Gloucestershire.
Tonight (Tuesday) they're organising a Battle of the Bands competition at Smokey Joe's in Bennington Street, Cheltenham, from 7pm to 9pm.
Seven local young bands are set to battle it out in the competition playing ten-minute sets. Entry is £3 and doors open at 6.45pm.
Then tomorrow, the same group are organising a Family Fun Day at Tewkesbury Rugby Club in Gander Lane from 11am to 3pm.
There will be all sort of games and attractions, including a bouncy castle and welly wanging. Entry is free.
Before organising the charity events, the group from Young Gloucestershire spent a week on an outward bound course on the Isle of Wight and a week learning life skills at Hartpury College.
