KIDS ARE ALRIGHT FINALIST 015: Fenland Arts Youth Theatre volunteers

TOM Field, 17, Scott Killingworth, Scarlett Morris and Lauren Russell, all 15, from March, earned a Kids Are Alright Challenge nomination last month for helping young performers take to the stage at a Fenland youth theatre.

THE four talented teenagers were praised by parents after spending hours volunteering at Fenland Arts Youth Theatre, working with children aged 6-11.

Katherine Nightingale, from Fenland Arts, said: “As well as using their skills in choreography, script writing and performing the nominees act as mentors.

“They support confidence building, act as a sounding board and at times work with challenging behaviour.

“It is wonderful to see the relationships develop between the children and the teenagers.”
