Natalie fronts the Revoelution!

5 August 2021

As part of her Duke of Edinburgh award Year 9 Aspire student Natalie has been volunteering at the Revoelution Community Centre in Revoe, helping to set up a shop window on Central Drive. The former Threlfall’s Home Bakery shop window has now become a showcase for all the activities and artwork local people in Revoe produced over lockdown, a community created piece of inspiration aimed at lifting local spirits.

Natalie said, “I’ve been helping to get the display ready all week and some of the creations are absolutely amazing, it really shows what talent there is locally and we’re hoping it will become quite an attraction.”

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (commonly abbreviated DofE) is a youth awards programme founded in the United Kingdom in 1956 by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, that has since expanded to 144 nations. The awards recognise young adults for completing a series of self-improvement exercises through volunteering, physical, skills, and expedition.

You can visit the display at Threfall’s Home Bakery, 164 Central Drive in Blackpool. To find out more about the Revoelution Community Centre click here and the Duke of Edinburgh’s award click here.
