Fenland youth worker wins Kids Are Alright Challenge monthly prize
INSPIRATIONAL youth worker Katie Stone has been named as this month’s Kids Are Alright Challenge winner.
The 19-year-old, from Tydd Gote, travelled to Albania last month to help care for vulnerable people in a missionary. She volunteers at a youth club in Elm and works at Krazy Dayz Nursery in Walsoken.
Judge Tali Iserles said: “All of our candidates are amazing but Katie’s gone the extra mile by travelling to Albania to care for homeless people - an incredible, courageous and selfless act.
“She also volunteers locally at a youth club in Elm, helping teens resolve their problems and organising activities.
“She hasn’t let a tough time at school get in the way of making a difference or following her dreams. Katie’s an inspiration to people of all ages.”
