Ian works with a group of teenagers, taking them on visits to historical places which they may not otherwise have a chance to visit, living in a rural area. They are self supporting, raising their own funds to go on these visits. The teenagers are responsible for organising the trips with adult supervision from Ian. The impact that these sort of trips and organising these trips and fundraising activities is that it allows them to be apart of something and helps the teenagers gain skills that will help them later in life. It also keeps the teenagers of the streets and stop them from getting into mischief. They also do regular newsletter to let the community know what they are doing for there next trip and fundraiser. Ian has been involved with this group for the last two years, and has not received any financial gain for his time and efforts, but gets great pleasure from seeing these teenagers developed and grow, showing a great amount of team spirit, and respect and care for each other. I think the greatest accolade so far has been the invitation to the Houses of Parliament from Norman Lamb. I would like to see this nomination successful because I really think Ian deserves this it would be the 'cherry on top of the cake' in recognition of his commitment to this group of teenagers.
