National sibling day: Lauren and Grace

Twin sisters and students at the Community Trust, Lauren and Grace, have each spent over 400 hours volunteering through the Trust. 

Lauren and Grace are both currently enrolled on their second year of the Trust’s girl’s football and futsal BTEC level 3 extended diploma in sport. The two youngsters have excelled academically and are both on track to achieve the grade of triple distinction star in their sports diplomas. This has led to the two young women receiving offers to continue their studies at Gloucester University next year.

As well as excelling in the classroom, Lauren and Grace are key players in the Community Trusts women’s futsal team with the two sisters playing an integral part in the team making it to the national finals which will be played at England's St Georges Park next month.

In addition to studying at the Community Trust, Lauren and Grace are also both members of Trust's youth council - a body of eight young people who help to shape the work that is conducted at the Community Trust - and have been since the council’s conception nearly three years ago.

During their time on the council, Lauren and Grace have received national recognition for their work, and won the 2017/18 FA women’s football award for ‘Best Participation Initiative’ for the Trust's 'Future Fives' initiative – a programme which they masterminded.

 

In addition to this, Lauren and Grace have each spent over 400 hours volunteering with the Trust on various different projects and programmes and are currently working at Easter Holiday football camps.

Lauren told the Trust that the voluntary work that they do has been "great and it has been massively rewarding for both myself and Grace.”

Head of Education at the Trust, Chris Stenner, commented that, “Lauren and Grace are two inspirational young women who have given a lot back to their local community.

“They have continued that hard work in both the class room and on the pitch, and are an absolute credit to the trust”.
