Two young people from Goole are excitedly getting ready for the trip of a lifetime after being awarded first place in Humberside Police’s 2018 Lifestyle Project.
Team H2O, made up of brother and sister Eloise Evans and Aaron Evans will be jetting off to South Africa next week as a reward for their hard work last summer.
After hearing about the problem of hygiene poverty the pair spent their summer holidays contacting businesses and collecting donations, enabling them to make and deliver hygiene packs to people in need.
As if that didn’t keep them busy enough, they also encouraged people to recycle single use plastic through Goole Refill Scheme.
Sergeant Nick Bunker from the community safety unit said: “H2O did some brilliant work to support those in need last summer.
“They definitely made a difference to the lives of the people that received their hygiene packs and I hope that this encourages other young people to think about helping their local community by getting involved in Lifestyle 2019.
“They thoroughly deserve this trip and I hope they have a brilliant time.”
Ellie Westwood, communications and engagement advisor at BP in Hull said: “The quality of this year’s Lifestyle project entries was really impressive, and team H20’s work was particularly inspirational, making them a very deserving winning team. We hope they enjoy their well-deserved prize!”
If you’re aged 10-18 and fancy making a difference in your community and potentially winning a fantastic prize, then look out for our PCSOs who will be visiting schools and colleges from April to promote Lifestyle 2019.
