As a teacher of 35 years experience I find Kirsty Frampton, a student of mine, a real personal inspiration. She is also a source of motivation for good for many others in our community. Kirsty lost her mother to cancer 8 years ago, and her grandfather 3 years ago. Instead of feeling sorry for herself, she has worked tirelessly to support others facing terminal cancer. She has combined her love of art, with her desire to support terminal patients and their families, by working alongside the Joseph Weld Hospice to develop art and photography as a means to help people deal with their forthcoming death. She then organised and ran a highly successful formal exhibition of terminal patients' art and photography work. Kirsty enrolled the support of many of her peers, and other volunteers, to set the evening up through her passion and commitment. The evening was attended by over 150 people and it raised over £620 for the Hospice. Following this success, Kirsty plans to make this an ongoing initiative with an annual exhibition. Kirsty's enthusiasm for this project, indeed her enthusiasm for life, is exceptional. Her sparky presence is very evident in my classroom and the sixth form corridor, and she has brought a large number of her peers to realise the potential that young people have to make a difference for good.
