Magazine: Issue 8 – Spirit of London (Special Edition)
E2E get into the positive Spirit of London with our special edition issue 8 of the magazine.
Welcome to our last issue of the year! As media partners of the Spirit of London Awards (SOLA), we have decided to dedicate it to the awards ceremony with a special edition of the magazine. After such a tremendous year for London which saw the summer Olympic games take place, it’s only right that we close it in style and celebrate the great things that the city’s young people do for their communities.
Only in its 4th year, the award ceremony nicknamed the “Community Youth Oscars” has come a long way from its humble beginnings in 2009 at Alexandra Palace. The award ceremony takes place tonight (December 10) at the O2 Arena, so there’s still time to get clued up on this year’s categories and nominees!
We’ve listed the 30 extraordinary and multi-talented finalists in their set categories, with small biographies on them all. So you can have fun choosing your own winners!
We did a full-on interview with Gary Trowsdale, the founder of SOLA, and gained a real insight into why the organisation was set up and where he sees it in the future. We also have interviews from previous SOLA winners and nominees from the first ceremony held to some of last year’s nominees. We found out the core details of what it was like being nominated and the impact the awards have had on their lives.
Peep the issue below which also features interviews with Chelsea Trowsdale, singer-songwriter Haynzy, ex-boxer Marlon Mellish and 2011 nominee Jahanara Chaudhry.
