Lacey Stevens was nominated by Mr. Broomhall of Kingsmead Technology College, for her fundraising efforts for Katharine House Hospice, who provide a range of services offering help, care and support for people with advanced life-limiting conditions across mid-Staffordshire.

Over the last two years Lacey has taken part in the ‘Winter Walk’ an annual event organised by the Hospice which is a five mile walk that starts and ends at Milford Common, and goes through the Shugborough Estate. In participating in this event Lacey has raised over £700, all in her own time.

The Council’s Youth Endeavour Award is given to a young person between the ages of 11 and 18 living in the Cannock Chase District who has made an outstanding contribution to the community, shown great bravery, or helped others in some way. We believe such people should be recognised and encouraged, and be proud of their achievements.

Lacey received her award from outgoing Chairman of Cannock Chase Council, Cllr Bob Todd.

Cllr Bob Todd said “Most stories about young people today are negative, our Youth Endeavour Award gives us the opportunity to recognise and reward the positive achievements made to our community by our young people. It was a pleasure to meet Lacey and present her with the award, she is a worthy winner.”
