The Young Leaders on the Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust London 2012 Young Leaders Programme have been busy in the community, and I had the privilege of attending the unveiling of the Greenwich group's impressive Olympic Mural.
The project was led by Matt Hutchings and supported by the rest of the Greenwich team: Brandylene Forsom, Tolu Odusanya, Nikki Oduwunmi and a few volunteers.
The large, stunning, Olympic themed design, was painted on the mural and then the Young Leaders and Olympic Badminton star, Donna Kellogg, took it around primary schools on foot, engaging numerous local children in decorating the painting on London 2012.
Friends, family, teachers and volunteers came to support the unveiling of the spectacular mural and I spoke about the effect on the community of this project and the development I have seen in the Young Leaders. They have done a brilliant first community project and I look forward to the next projects (Including an Olympic themed photography show and 40m community run).
It is great to see the effort these young people are putting in, the results are spectacular, it goes to show that you can do anything if you set your mind to it.
