Throughout November 2014, Get Set to Make a Change hosted a series of celebration events across the UK to recognise and thank thousands of Legacy Leaders for the fantastic volunteer projects they delivered in their local communities.

Canterbury, Exeter, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Norwich, Birmingham, Glasgow and London welcomed Legacy Leaders at glamorous red carpet venues where their community projects were showcased throughout the region. The Legacy Leaders were even greeted by star athletes such as Beth Tweddle and Natalie Jones to name a few, who spoke about the inspiring change their projects had achieved. Highlights included:

  • Mowbray School’s introduction of balloon tennis at The Millings Residential Care Home
  • Stepney Bank Stables’ charity Dressage competition
  • The Triton Team’s sensory garden for the local community
  • South Bromsgrove’s charity Netball match
  • Meadow Park Girls Football Club encouraging more girls to participate in football

Legacy Leaders were rewarded with signed certificates and golden batons serving as a reminder to continue with their projects and keep pledging to make a change.

The Get Set to Make a Change programme ran until March 2015, with schools from across the country sending in their pledges.
