Name: Lewis Pask
Age: 19
Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Sheffield, South Yorkshire
Campaign: To encourage young people to take up charity work

I got into a lot of trouble at school – drinking, fighting, and hanging around with the wrong crowd.

 

Eventually I was kicked out, before I got to take any GCSEs.

 

I realised I needed to turn my life around, and start using it for good.

 

I’ve thrown myself into charity work, and I’ve now raised more than £15,000. This has mainly gone to help children with cancer.

 

I see a lot of other young people hanging around on streets and getting up to no good.

 

I want to encourage them to get into charity work – it gives you purpose in life and makes a difference to others less fortunate than you.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

 

Antonio Androsiglio

Elisha Dearden

Jospeh Bentley

Nick Clayton

Scarlet Fielding

 

 

 

Roo Mahid from Voluntary Action Sheffield supported my project by providing an interview for the ITV News item.
