Liberty X reward charitable giving
In Downing Street today Liberty X and government ministers will be giving a little bit back to young people.Around 60 young people from eleven schools throughout the UK are travelling to London to celebrate their involvement in charity.
Putting their words into action, Liberty X, Miquita Oliver and Government Ministers will give some of their time and energy to the national youth initiative Giving Nation (G-Nation), as they present the 2004 G-Nation Awards.
After the presentation and speeches by government ministers David Milliband, Fiona Mactaggart and John Healey at 11 Downing Street, the winners will then take to the skies on the London Eye.
The overall winner will travel to a charity project in India with Save the Children and Giving Nation in February and will be announced on Tuesday.
In addition schools will receive regional awards of up to £1,000 to use for their charity activity.
"We are very happy that we have been given the opportunity to be involved with G-Nation again this year", said Liberty X.
"It's a great campaign that really talks to young people on their level. We have been so impressed by the participants’ achievements and are happy to be able to present them with their awards."
This year’s winnning activities included an innovative G-Rock concert, showcasing schools’ hottest musical talents, and clearing rubbish to make a cleaner countryside.
