AN inspirational Ballycastle youth volunteer has been recognised in the 2017 Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards.
Lucia Quinney Mee is among 20 finalists in the scheme, the only all-Ireland youth initiative of its kind which rewards post-primary students for outstanding acts of volunteerism and the positive contribution they make in their local communities and further afield.
The sixth year student Cross and Passion College student had her first liver transplant at the age of eight. Following two more transplants, Lucia is extremely passionate about the incredible gift that organ donation is and in 2015 set up the campaign 'Live Loudly Donate Proudly'.
