Ana Ianus has been appointed a trustee for a scheme aiming to build a climbing centre to cater for both able bodied and disabled young people. iDID Adventure has clubs across the country providing sports and activities for young people. It recruited trustees to oversee a project to create a new climbing centre in Corby and Ana was appointed after an interview with Gerard Scully from the Northampton branch of iDID.
Ana, from Year 12, said: ‘The role of the trustees is to help make decisions. Usually they are people who have expertise in finance or business but the organisation also want a few young people involved as the centre is aimed at them. It is special because of its ability to facilitate climbing for people who have disabilities or those who are disadvantaged. This inclusivity sets it apart from most other climbing centres. I like sports but I wanted to become a trustee as, not only will it look good on my CV, it is an opportunity to take responsibility and make a bit of a change in the community.’
