Sharon Williams Runner Up in O2 Community Award


Sharon joined Netherley Youth & Community Initiative in 2005 and since then it has gone from strength to strength. It provides an informal, friendly and safe environment for young people to socialise and develop their skills and learning. With her skill and determination, she has managed to obtain funding from many funding portals.

She has successfully installed a fitted kitchen in the Club and set up a computer hub with 12 computers for the children, young people and adults of the area to utilise. In April 2011, Sharon was informed that the church was to close and so her mission was to ensure it remained open. She secured over 2,000 signatures, took the petition to the Bishop of Liverpool, overcame lease barriers and secured the building. She also manages to co-ordinate the Netherley Show, a once a year community event which 2,500 people attend.
