Tinie Tempah has helped to inspire a teenage volunteer in her work with OAPs across Milton Keynes.

Tinie, who is known for hits such as Trampoline, met graduates of the National 
Citizen Service (NCS) last week, including 17-year-old Bethany Grant.

Bethany already dedicates much of her free time to a community project called GenerationMix, which she founded last year after taking part in NCS.

But meeting Tinie has inspired her to keep up with her work, which sees her help teach senior citizens in care homes how to use technology to keep in touch with family and friends.

Bethany said: Meeting Tinie Tempah was fantastic.

“He took the time to tell us about his experience starting out in the music industry and the need to find work that he wasn’t passionate about in order to fund his dream of making a music video.

“He’s really inspiring and has made me more determined than ever to keep focused and keep trying; key attributes to success.”
