Peace-loving Hyndburn student wins chat with Eliza Doolittle
10:59am Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
A STUDENT’S award winning campaign for peace has seen her win the chance to chat with pop star Eliza Doolittle.
Rhyddings student Lucy Fox entered the creative competition to promote peace, organised by global campaigners Peace One Day.
Year 10 student Lucy entered online, answering the question ‘What does peace look like to you?’ with an image of herself directing her own film about peace.
As well as winning herself an Apple iPad, Lucy and her classmates at the Oswaldtwistle school got the opportunity to videocall Eliza Doolittle — best known for her top 40 hits Pack Up and Skinny Genes — and ask her about the Peace One Day initiative.
The 15-year-old said it was ‘amazing’ to chat with the chart-topping singer.
Lucy said: “I found out about the competition online and I didn’t want to just hold up a sign like everyone else seemed to be doing.
“Then I remembered I got a movie clapperboard for my birthday and thought that would be far more original.
“Speaking to Eliza was a little awkward at first and we had a few technical problems, but once we all relaxed we had a good conversation.
“She was really friendly.”
