Leeds Children's Mayor
LAUREN GOT TO THE FINALS FOR LEEDS CHILDREN'S MAYOR IN 2022
Lauren Bayly in Y5 stood for the Leeds Children's Mayor and was shortlisted for the finals.
Here is Lauren's manifesto idea:
'Create a citywide uniform exchange to help with t'he cost of living crisis
Although Lauren didn't quite make it to the role this year, we want to congratulate her for making it to the finals - what active citizenship!
"I would like to promote the uniform exchange projects across Leeds. As the price of living is rising, many parents/carers are struggling. By every area having a uniform exchange project it will lift the financial pressure off guardians.
Many children could be suffering with bullying as they may not have suitable, comfortable, clean clothing. Together we can ensure no children are going through this situation.
Every area in Leeds should be assigned a uniform exchange project. Uniforms that children no longer need will be re-used and given to those in need. Every child has the right to comfortable clothing."
