''It makes you feel proud on the inside and it also make you feel proud on the outside because its not just the fact that you have done that- its the fact that you are trying to do something better with your life and your trying to better yourself and trying to help other people in the community''
Mark Kenny (Young Person)

Art students at Chill Enterprises have produced an art piece inspired by the late Stephen Sutton. Moved by his dedication to raising funds for the charity that supported him during his battle with cancer, the young people immediately felt that they wanted to do ‘their bit' using their passion for Art to help the charity and continue to support his legacy.
Young people have been working with a local artist from NV Arts to produce an 8ft wide Mural which they plan to auction to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.
The students aged 16-18 have been working on a variety of art pieces over the year with Chill Enterprises and are due to complete their course at the end of June. They wanted to complete the programme by doing a commemorative piece and felt strongly about the story of Stephen and felt that this would be a effective way to continue his work in raising awareness and funds for the charity.
The art piece labelled by the students as 'When life gives you lemons' is inspired by Stephens comment 'when life gives you lemons, make lemonade, but what do you do when life gives you cancer? This is not a sob story. This is Stephen's story'.
The art piece will be available to view as part of the young people’s exhibition tomorrow (Wednesday 11th June) from 12pm-3pm at Quad Studios, 78 Friday Street, Leicester, LE1 3BW
