After winning the Spark Award 2014 a fortnight ago, Seaford Musical Theatre Juniors (SMTJ) picked up further recognition at the East Sussex Youth Awards 2014.

SMTJ performed at the finale of the evening and won the Arts and Media category, with 18 year old member, Rebecca Woolven, winning the award for Young Volunteer.

A spokesman for the group said: “Guests at the ceremony, including Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd, watched the pop video collaboration between SMTJ and local band ‘We Are Lions’ where young people created canvasses which were then put together to form a heart mural.

“Many of the canvasses were sold at the event and over £250 was raised for the Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice.”
