Celebrating the Achievements of Young People Across the North East: Number 4
Lea Spence was nominated by Leanne, Youth Leader at Newcastle Community Asset Trust, in our Young Volunteer of the Year category. Leanne said she nominated Lea because she has been absolutely dedicated to helping at the centre since she became a volunteer over 2 years ago. Lea has never let them down, and always attends every session no matter what. Leanne wanted Lea to be recognised for all her hard work over the years as she really appreciates everything she does. Leanne went on to say Lea has showed nothing but enthusiasm and dedication to run the under 9’s dance sessions. She has worked really hard to promote the group, and they now see triple the numbers attending than before.
We caught up with Lea to ask her what she has enjoyed most about this project, Lea said ‘ I love working with the kids, hopefully I can make the group bigger and take them to dance competitions one day’.
Fantastic work Lea, we am sure you will be able to achieve anything to put your mind to. Well done from everyone at Youth Focus: North East.
