My name is Ben, I am 15 and study at Durham Johnston Comprehensive School. I live in a small village juts outside of Durham.
I have been a part of County Durham a Darlington Fire and Rescue Service for 2 and a half years, based from Durham and High Handenhold fire stations as a young firefighter. As well as being part of the YFA I work with the media teams to create social media posts by contributing the photographs. I have also had numerous photos printed in the local newspapers.
I spent a few years helping Durham park run coordinating runners and timing runners etc. I have also volunteered at Durham Regatta and Durham Lumiere in 2017.
I believe that children should have a fantastic program in there local community to develop there skills and make new relationships with friends not only during primary school age but also during secondary school. At Sacristan Youth Project we also develop children's sport and artistic skills during the weekly sessions.
