(LEFT – THE SATURDAYS) vInspired, an organisation dedicated to recognising and celebrating the efforts of young volunteers, held their anual award ceremony on the 26th March. It was hosted by Emma Willis and comedian Eddie Kadie who was over the moon about being back a second year in a row.
The event, which took place at Camden’s Roundhouse, saw the likes of AME (who presented an award), The Risk and The Saturdays who closed the ceremony and opened the floor for the after party. (BELOW – RUBY, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF WITH THE RISK)
