Jake Stacey – 2018 Inspirational Young Person 11-14 years – Male
Jake, aged 12, has spinal muscular atrophy, he is a wheelchair user and his muscles are gradually weakening because of the condition, for which there is no cure and only limited treatment. Jake loves acting and wants to be on stage. He has had small TV parts and despite years of being told he couldn’t audition for theatre roles because of his disability, he didn’t give up and finally landed the lead role in Tom Fletcher’s The Christmasaurus last December. He took to the stage at the Hammersmith Apollo and showed the world that, wheelchair or not, he was destined to be a musical theatre star.
