A room has been given a make-over by a group of youngsters.

The young people turned interior designers after successfully securing £2,000 from the Starbucks Social Action Fund to give the room in North Tyneside Council’s HQ a make-over.

The young people have done a wonderful job transforming the room into a more welcoming and homely space.

Mayor Norma Redfearn

The 12 to 17-year-olds are all members of North Tyneside’s Children in Care Council, a group who represent the voice of looked-after children in the borough.

Their ambition was to create a comfortable and relaxed setting where young people in care could enjoy contact with their birth families.

Mayor Norma Redfearn said: “The young people have done a wonderful job transforming the room into a more welcoming and homely space.

“They’ve selflessly given up their time for the benefit of their friends and peers and I must say a huge thank you to them all.”

As well as picking the colour scheme, the group bought toys, suitable for different age groups, and furniture for the room.
