Cardiff and Vale College partners win Local Hero Awards

A tutor and student who work in partnership with Cardiff and Vale College have been awarded for their work in the local community.

The Ministry of Life runs creative and musical workshops, youth clubs and events for young people in Cardiff. Working in close collaboration with Cardiff and Vale College’s community team, the Ministry of Life also runs a music technology, events promotion and social enterprise course.

Tutor Michael Ivins, aka DJ Zippy, and student Jamie Feeney have won joint Local Hero Awards for their work in the community. The awards were given due to Michael and Jamie’s work in helping young people to achieve so many qualifications through the course throughout the last year and making a real difference to the community.

Jamie won two awards and was runner up in another category.

Michael said: “These awards go to show that our efforts are not going un-noticed and CAVC has played a really important part in all of this.”
