A ST Helens break dancing crew have scooped a top award.

The UC Crew were honoured at the first ever epic awards winners’ reception took place at the House of Lords.

The epic awards are designed to highlight excellence and innovation in amateur arts groups across England and are an initiative of Voluntary Arts England.

Tom Glynn from UC Crew, who scooped the Creativity award for their break dancing project which highlighted the dangers of smoking, said: “I would say to other groups wanting to get involved in the epic awards to go for it!

“You get to tell your story to Members of Parliament and you might not always get the opportunity to do so, so you have to take it while you can.”
