Sydenham student invited to 10 Downing Street

Year 12 student, Khadijah, was lucky enough to visit 10 Downing Street recently. She spent 2 hours inside networking and talking to other small charity leaders. She was invited as a representative of a horse riding youth club charity, Ebony Horse Club, alongside the manager. She was chosen for this having been a senior member there for 4 years. Khadijah is in charge of the youth council and currently also in charge of a renovation project at Ebony.

The event was designed for networking and recognising the work of small charities. The MP hosting the event was the Right Honourable Matt Hancock MP, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, which also encompasses charity work. Khadijah spoke to him briefly about her charity and her role. She also spoke to the founder of St. John’s Ambulance Service and is hoping to start volunteering in the holiday for them.

Khadijah was the only non-adult representative and we are very proud of the hard work and dedication she has shown to her charity in order to receive this prestigious invitation.
