Abigayle Still and Teni Ogunlesi who both represent Thurrock Swimming Club were recently nominated for TruLittle Hero Awards.
Abigayle was nominated for the Sports award based on her recent success within the pool and the fact that she gives up her spare time to teach others within Thurrocks Learn to Swim programme. She was also nominated Club Captain and is a great role model.
Teni was put forward for the TruLittle Artistic Hero award for a young person who is thriving and demonstrating excellence in dance and drama based on the principal role which she played in the internationally renowned award winning musical and theatre production Lion King as Young Nala and her other roles in Musical Theatre in Annie the Musical, Wizard of Oz and performances at Her Majesty’s Theatre – Haymarket and Sadler’s Wells Theatre, both in London.
Trutalk recognises the commitment, talent and dedication of young people within the community. It was a great evening, and both girls were recognised for their hard work. What was more impressive was that both Abigayle and Teni won their category.
