We were exceptionally honoured to have been invited to join with other guests at the High Sheriff of the West Midlands Awards Dinner, in St Martins Church in the city centre. This prestigious occasion was to mark the individuals and organisations who have been inspirational over the last 12 months and beyond, across the whole of the West Midlands. Unexpectedly, free@last was included in the awards in recognition of great and valuable services to the community of Nechells. We are exceptionally proud and humbled by this award and will continue to live and work to the standards that have been awarded here. Our thanks go to Chris Loughran, the High Sheriff, for his support and recognition of our work, thank you.
The Nechells Lions had a tough match in the latest competition, as they only had 6 players turn up, but still decided to play the match against a team of 14 players, fielding a rotating 9. Not only did they have a third less players, they had thick fog to navigate through, right up until the end, when the sun came out! although they lost the match 14:1, the showed their true heart as they battled on to the end. Well done boys.
At the end of 2018, a team from international solicitor firm Gowlings WLG & Co, pledged to support free@last in any way they could. One of the team, Richard Lowe, ran a half marathan to raise money towards taking a group of young people to visit the Gowlings office in London. Richard bought the train tickets, joined us on the journey to London and arranged a tour of the building and guest speakers. Following a lovely lunch and a ‘short’ stroll along the banks of the River Thames we ended up visiting the London Dungeons. This was a great day for our young people and we are exceptionally thankful to Richard and the team who for supporting free@last and organising this excellent trip.
Our very own Naomi Spencer, founder and director of Candy Bubbles (and also manager of the Nechells Lions), celebrated her 10th Anniversary of Candy Bubbles. It was a lovely evening of celebration, memories, friends and family joining together for a fun filled evening showing what has been achieved from a girl from Nechells. Naomi epitomises inspiration, passion and drive to achieve and is a great role model for our young people. Oh, and she was raising money for free@last too, her chosen charity 🙂
