It was a real pleasure to meet the pupils of King Edward VII College in Coalville on 1 March 2017. Deana and Julia, took part in the ‘mock interview’ day, they saw just how much talent and passion there is in young people, some with clear cut career paths already in place, others taking their time to see what develops!
It was memorable to see “the smiles on the faces of those students who particularly lack confidence and have overcome this as a result of their interviews. Volunteering your time at events such as this makes a colossal difference to the lives of young people. You have widened their horizons, raised their aspirations, improved their confidence and made them smile. Your hard work has literally changed the lives of the young people you interacted with; neither we nor they can possibly thank you enough!”
Alice Wealleans, Senior Leader for Employability
Deana and Julia are in the great position to offer young people the chance to get meaningful community based volunteering opportunities in Coalville. Why not get in touch and see how you can be part of our team of Coalville Heroes!
The Street Art Trailer can be brought to your home, business or event and we can supply a street artist and paints if you need them – we do have to make a small charge for use of paints and transport costs, plus the street artist hourly fee.
These youngsters were practicing their names using brightly coloured paints and white outlines. Julia, one of our Directors was very pleased with her JB tag created by Ample the artist assisting on the day!
On Thursday 1st Sep the Coalville Musical Theatre School performed their very own version of Living On A Prayer – Coalville Market style! It was awesome – after performing it in the Market last week they got to do it on the stage at Coalvilles very own theatre. Hopefully they are going to create a Century Theatre version next – looking forward to it!
On 3 June 2016, Deana Wildgoose and Julia Burkin committed their passion and expertise for the next 18 months to the Coalville Project, an initiative supported by North West Leicestershire District Council.

Julia and Deana will share their journey with you by posting where they have been, who they are talking with and what already happens in Coalville. They will also be introducing lots of new activities and collaborations.
