Alice is a local to Leicestershire and a creative artist. She contacted us to say, “I was born in Leicester and run an art business. I kickstarted my career by focusing on creating art of Leicestershire. All my artwork has grown from the feeling of being proud of being from Leicestershire. I have artwork of Charnwood that focuses on local landmarks in a bright, colourful and playful way.”
“I am very keen to support you in supporting the young people from our area. I would not be lucky enough to be in the position I am today without the help of clubs, that taught me confidence and helped me to open my eyes to the wider world. I think investing in the younger generation is really important and I would love to make this work.”
