My sister in law Debbie works tirelessly for her local community Dormanstown, which is an extremely deprived area of Teesside. She is the founder of The Ladies of Steel a charitable group that focus on the local community including providing a youth club for 8 to 15 year olds, a youth dance troop, in addition to family galas and regular children’s parties for Christmas and Easter. The ladies of Steel were awarded the honour of Voluntary group of the year 2010 by the Redcar & Cleveland Voluntary Development Agency. Debbie does all this whilst managing The corus sports & social centre.
It was a really bitter sweat day for us, as we normally would always go with my mum, but the boys had a fantastic day, watching their cousin dance with the Clubs dance group. Mini was voted as having the fancy dress costumes by the Major (so it couldn’t be classed as a fix). Mini also got to work with the birds of prey (he was the first to volunteer).
The boys tried their hands at archery and rock climbing too and it was a fantastic day. So well done to Debbie and the other people involved, you really did a fantastic job.
