YourBigYear Finalist hails from Orrell.

I met with Orrell resident Sarah Davies today to wish her well as she represents the UK in the YourBigYear competition.

Over 60,000 (8,000 from the UK) applied to be a global ambassador with an all expenses paid trip around the world for 12 months, taking part in volunteer projects across 5 continents.

Applicants have been whittled down to a final 16 and Sarah will be asked to compete in an 'Apprentice' style challenge until a winner is announced.

Liverpool based Smaller Earth launched the competition. Sarah informed me that the company arranges work/travel and volunteering opportunities across the world.

I know that the whole community will get behind Sarah and we are all very proud of her achievements to date.
