Keighleigh regularly attends our 1st Step and Teen Bar sessions. Keighleigh was born with a congenital heart disorder has been through heart surgery and left school with no qualifications due to being in hospital a lot. After attending Silx and with support of workers who encouraged her and built up her confidence Keighleigh is now employed at Newcastle United Football Club and is studying Animal Care at Kirkley Hall College! Keighleigh was recently nominated  at the Northumberlands Finest awards and was given a local Northumberland heroes award for over coming barriers and she was also awarded the Young Volunteer Award at this Years Projects with Pride. Well Done Keighleigh 🙂
