Aspiring youngsters who took part in a creative project will be awarded for their achievements.

The Aspire project run by Young Addaction in Morecambe encourages young people to do positive acts as an early intervention tool.

Mari Ryan, youth worker, who co-ordinated the Aspire project since its inception in 2010, said: “The awards ceremony is to celebrate all the work the young people have done over the past three years.

“Amy Winehouse’s mum Jane will be there to present the awards.

“I want as many people involved in Aspire as possible to come to the awards night including long term volunteers and people from the Kids trust to celebrate their achievements. Without these people a lot of the project wouldn’t have happened.”

The largest project that teens were involved in is the Larks in the Park youth music and arts festival which has been held for the past few years in Williamson Park in Lancaster. Other projects have involved graffit projects, zoo projects and art projects.

Mari said: “I’m sad to see it finish. Its been really nice to stop and have a look at what I’ve done. It would be nice to get sponsorship from local businesses to help it continue.” The Aspire awards night takes place at More Music in Morecambe tomorrow, March 12 from 7pm until 10pm.
