A YOUTH worker has been given a Mother’s Day treat for her selfless work in the community.

Cheryl Spamer underwent a nail pamper session at Asda Boldon’s in-store nail bar.

The treat was to recognise the work the mum-of-two has done to set up South Tyneside Positive Activities and Targeted Youth Support Group – commonly known as Bored in Boldon.

The project targets young people between the ages of 10 and 25 offering organised youth clubs, a range of sporting activities as well as volunteering opportunities and job search facilities.

The group regularly works in partnership with the fire service, police and other community groups.

Tracey Tough, community life champion at Asda Boldon, said: “Cheryl has made a huge difference to the youth in the local area.

“Crime has gone down in the area, and relationships with the older community have improved. She really is an inspiration, so her pamper session was very well-deserved!”

Cheryl added: “It is really lovely to be recognised for my work in the local community and I’m very grateful to Asda.

“I felt like a VIP and now have a beautiful set of nails just in time for Mother’s Day” The Bored in Boldon group meets at the Village Hall in North Road, Boldon, every night except Thursdays and Saturdays, and every Wednesday at Boldon Community Association in New Road, Boldon Colliery.
