Five young people who help raise money for adults with learning difficulties have been praised for setting a good example.
They are the youth committee of Helping Hands – the fundraising arm of the Sudbury Community Hub in Northern Road – and have been nominated for the Sudbury Rotary Young Citizen Award 2014, awards given to young people who show good citizenship.
The committee is headed up by Chloe Lock, aged 19, from Maldon Court, Great Cornard, who is pictured far right.
Other members, pictured from left, are Sian Lawson and Jack Ingram, both 15, who attend Ormiston Sudbury Academy. The committee is completed by Jess Crago, 18, and Luke Cresswell, 25.
Helping Hands chairman and Sudbury councillor Jack Owen, also pictured, nominated the team.
He said: “My reasons for making this nomination are that most charities are finding it very difficult to recruit young people.
“We were concerned that our committee was getting on in years so advertised for young people to join us, and these five youngsters got in touch.”
Nominations for the awards close on January 31.
