TEENAGER'S CHEQUES FOR CHARITIES.

A TEENAGER from Bootle presented six cheques to charities at the Linda McCartney Centre in Liverpool.

Steve Reddie, 18, who left Southport's KGV College earlier this year to pursue a career in community and charity work, gave pounds 500 to each charity.

The money came from his award won at the Nationwide-sponsored Community and Heritage awards ceremony at the Tower of London.

The worthy causes to benefit included The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, Alder Hey children's hospital, Zoe's Place baby hospice, Linda McCartney Centre and the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Steve also presented a cheque to Sefton Young Advisers.

He said: "I'm so grateful for the nominations given by the staff at KGV. The work we do for charity is phenomenal.

"I wanted to donate the money associated with this award to the charities I admire."
