Zachery Says #IWILL


On Tuesday 13th November, Zachery of Year 9 was invited to join the #iwill Ambassadors. #iwill Ambassadors are young people between 10-20 years of age who lead positive social action in their communities. Zachery attended a celebration event at Kew Gardens in London, along with another forty-nine other young people, chosen as #iwill Ambassadors. The event was supported by representatives from other national organisations all celebrating social action.

Zachery has volunteered in various local organisations, supporting social action and fundraising for most of his life. He planted bulbs at Stanley Park in an area specially designed for people with additional needs when he was just 2 years of age! Zachery is a keen member of his scout group and plays an active role in fundraising at the school. Zachery has raised funds for Homestart, Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde for the last few years and is now an active volunteer fundraiser with the organisation. In 2019, Zachery is planning a 24-hour ping-pong event with his friends to raise money for Homestart and to raise awareness of the services they provide. Zachery is also part of the Youth Forum for The Washington Group CIC.

Well done Zachery. Great work!
