We've been 'bizzy' baking to raise a slice of cash for community hall in Bottesford
Lifestyle groups across North Lincolnshire are continuing to keep up the hard work and help the community as the summer break draws to an end.
Youngsters across the region are taking part in the Lifestyle challenge as part of Humberside Police's scheme to get young people involved in community projects over the holidays.
One group of youngsters going by the name of Bizzy Fingers has been selling home-made cakes all summer long to raise money for the Teapot Hall in Bottesford.
Its members have now collected more than £600 for the hall.

Group members Megan McVicker, Lily Johnson and Morgan Butler, all 11, sold their cakes at Asda on Burringham Road in Scunthorpe.
Group member Annabelle Nattrass, 11, was missing from the group on the day, but has been helping raise money all summer.
Lily said: "We have been back to the Teapot Hall since to clean the garden and it now looks a lot tidier.
"We have also done a sponsored walk over the Humber Bridge which was hard work but really good fun."
Megan said: "The whole competition has been amazing and kept us very busy.
"We have made a lot of cakes and they have been selling well.
"I would like to do the scheme again next year and would recommend other people to join."
Lifestyle group Galaxy Defenders has also been spending all summer raising money for its chosen charity.
The group – consisting of Gabby Barker, Cheska Lyon and Emma Kirk, all 13 – organised a market stall in Scunthorpe to raise money for Scruples Whippet Rescue, which rehomes whippets in England, Scotland and Wales.
The group sold a variety of items, including hand-made bracelets and pencil cases, and held activities such as guess the name of the dog.
Emma said: "Everyone was very helpful and a lot of items were donated.
"The whole day was fun and we also met some people who had whippets like we do, which was great.
"I think it is great to know the money we have raised will help other whippets, because they are lovely dogs."
The Galaxy Defenders have also completed a sponsored walk around Scunthorpe and have so far raised more than £300.
Elsewhere, the White Roses Lifestyle group is raising money to help buy a new cycle shed at Parkwood Primary School in Scunthorpe.
Group members Codie Mackenzie, 12, Sam Mackenzie, 11, Chloe Peace, 12 and Milena Kowalska, 12, have been busy all summer trying to raise money by holding a tombola stall and garage sales.
So far the group has raised £200.
Another pro-active Lifestyle group from Scunthorpe has been helping the environment by litter picking around Brigg.
Lifestyle volunteers Molly Baker and Olivia West have been tidying up around the Millennium Green and Woodbine Park areas.
