Inspirational 13-year-old ENL UTC student Eve, who is the head chorister at Grimsby Minster dedicates her spare time to helping local people in need.
Eve Woods, from Searby near Caistor, gives up many hours of her free time to volunteer for the We Are One Food Poverty Alliance, a food bank which operates from St Andrews’ Church on Albion Street in Grimsby. She also spends most weekends volunteering for a soup kitchen which was set up for those who are vulnerable and/or homeless.
On top of this, Eve raised £650 in just six days for the We Are One Foundation by riding 50 miles on her bike – and managed to raise a further £200 for The Poppy Appeal. Eve also bakes cakes, biscuits and crumbles for elderly people in the village she lives – and leaves baked goods on people’s doorsteps as random acts of kindness.
Last Easter, Eve also managed to collect 400 Easter eggs to give to people in need. Despite her own challenges with dyslexia, Eve is so passionate about helping those more vulnerable than herself – so much so that she has just won a prestigious award. Incredibly, Eve has won The Nottingham’s Innovative Young People of 2021 competition, which sought to find young people who have demonstrated “inspiring ways to further their education or boost career aspirations”.
