MY SOCIAL ACTION JOURNEY ” Social action is a big part of mine and my sister Sky’s life. From cake sales to raise money and awareness for leprosy, to a sponsored walk for cancer awareness, helping at Northern Beat in the Grand Theatre, and playing my flute at a concert for a Ugandan charity, I always try to help others where I can. We both like to support our family, too. Our mum is currently expecting her twelfth baby, and our little brother was born premature, so we do what we can to help, and help other babies born premature – recently we donated my brother’s baby clothes to the local hospital. I’m also a Volunteer Police Cadet, and recently helped raise a lot of money for a little boy called Samuel who has lissencephaly so that he could get a new wheelchair. For my fundraising I was awarded the title Cadet of the Year which I’m really proud of. Soon, I’ll be starting a voluntary placement at Scaleford retirement home and I’m really looking forward to it.
