Former Recorder/Redbridge Rotary Club Young Citizens have shared their stories on camera for the re-launch of our awards this week.
Last year’s winner Bella Field, 10, 2009 finalist Charlie Hogg and 2013 winner Lucy Daldy all spoke to the Recorder about being nominated and how it affected their lives.
Bella, from Woodford Green, started fundraising for Haven House Children’s Hospice after her sister Molly died from a brain tumour at the age of eight.
When he was just 21, Charlie, from Wanstead, raised ?25,000 in cash and sponsored equipment to buy a de-commissioned ambulance, kit it out as a mobile clinic and drive 7,438 miles from London to Mongolia.
Lucy, who grew up in Hainault, began volunteering at the charity Step Up after she was sexually abused aged just eight.
