Young Ambassador

Our Young Ambassador for this our Centennial Year is Rosie Nicholls who is sponsored by the Lions Club of Jersey. 

Rosie will attend the MD 105 Finals in Dudley over the weekend 24th to 26th February 2017. We send her with our best wishes and support and hope that she can progress further in this fantastic competition. Rosie thanked the Lions Club of Jersey and the District for giving her this exciting opportunity. We wish her every success.

Rosie is a Year 9 student studying a range of GCSEs. Her musical talents include piano & guitar but her strength is singing and she is also a keen athlete.

Despite all these interests she is here today because of her brave work in a sensitive area of Community Service.   Through connection with the NSPCC she is involved with MIND Jersey and CAMHS, bridging the gap to young people.    Her challenge to the Education Department has led to improved school PSHE lessons and the creation of Family SMILES for children with a parent suffering mental conditions.   The group are also setting up a therapeutic service for children who have suffered sexual abuse.

She somehow manages to find time to work in the British Red Cross shop on Saturdays!   Rosie is visibly making a difference and in areas from which others would shy away.   We are delighted to have Rosie represent
