Jordan Bell, 16, left Ambergate Sports College at the end of the last academic year. GANF entered Jordan into the Unique Art Awards, submitting several pieces of wood sculpture based around the theme of ‘My World’.

The Unique Art Awards recognise disabled young artists throughout the UK. They run six categories that are open to all young disabled artists who fall into each group. The Awards took place in London on October 17th 2016.

Jordan, who has Autism Spectrum Disorder loves woodwork and is now doing a woodcarving course at Hill Holt Wood. He was given plenty of instruction by his Great Uncle who used to be a professional woodcarver.

Jordan’s mum Vicky said, “The awards ceremony was amazing, so well organised, and Jordan was really looked after. We made a whole day of it because neither of us had ever visited London before!”

Jordan said: “I came 3rd in my category! It was a great day.”
