Fixers Back in Anglia

Courageous, creative, and always inspiring, Fixers sees 16-25 year-olds making a difference to whatever area they desire, in whatever way they want.

 

With broadcasts across all ITV Regional News programmes, there is plenty of opportunity to witness the variety of projects young people are working on to make a difference.

 

The first broadcast in Anglia gives a preview of what is to come, and shows just what Fixers have been up to over the past few years.

 

The first Fixer film in Anglia – broadcast on Thursday 6th December – highlights the work of Fixers Kaitlin Trenerry (16) and Kieran Hutchence (17) who devised the unique, colourful Harwich Hoodie Festival.

 

The aim of the festival was to bring people from across Harwich together to show what young people in the town are really up to, breaking the trouble-making ‘hoodie’ stereotype of young people.

 

The film follows the Fixers through their project and showcases some of the attractions at the festival including a cake stand, a snake stand, and a message from Olly Murs.

 

Also featured is past Fixer Kyle Simmons (25) who shows just what his Fixers project has done to his life. Once in care and reliant on drink and drugs, Kyle turned his life around and made a music video with Fixers to show how others can do the same.
