Project Description

Tia Wallace

Age 10, Middlesbrough

I’m 10 years old and in Year 6 at my primary school. I love to help other people in my school and in my community. I’m a school prefect, which means I look after the younger pupils at lunchtime as a buddy, and help with all the social action that our school does. We support charities like the World Literacy Foundation to provide books for children in Colombia, and we dressed up recently to support International Literacy Day.

Outside school and in the holidays, me, my mum and my little brother do lots to help our community. My mum runs coffee mornings and a listening group for local parents, and when we’re not at school we help her. We volunteer at a foodbank, work in the community garden and help out at the holiday club at the Trinity Centre, the local church. I’m also a Girlguide and I go every week. I’m always looking for new ways to help people and I’m proud to have a mum who inspires me to do it.
