Wowzer, these One Direction boys don’t exactly use their well-earned break to have a rest do they? They’ve hardly blimmin’ stopped since they stepped off that stage in Dubai and it’s basically because they are so bloomin’ lovely.
Yes, following Liam Payne’s super successful Great Gatsby ball for Trekstock just last week and Louis Tomlinson’s charity football match on Sunday, Liam is back again to show the world just how big-hearted and lovely he is by lending his support to initiatives from his hometown.
Yes, the 22 year old surprised Wolverhampton locals yesterday when he rocked up to the ‘topping out’ ceremony for the city’s new Youth Zone alongside his mum Karen, dad Geoff, and girlfriend Sophia.
Named ‘The Way’, the zone is a purpose-built facility for the young people of Wolverhampton for when they need “somewhere to go, something to do, someone to talk to”, and it is hoped that lovely Liam will become the project’s figurehead.
Speaking at yesterday’s launch in a rather fetching florescent jacket and hard hat, our fave Lima Bean said: “Wolverhampton is my home town and I am keen to give something back to the city that gave me a start in life.”
N’aww, talk about don’t forget where you belong, eh?
Steve Morgan, chairman of the Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C., said of Liam’s involvement with the development: “This is fantastic news. The young people of Wolverhampton could not have a better role model to show them the way forward.”
And not to be obvious, but we totally agree.
The businessman added: “Liam wants to be actively involved and come down to The Way when he can after it has opened. They would obviously have to be surprise visits.
“With his connections he could be a huge help. He is really excited about the project. He is a world wide icon who wants to put a bit back and we could not be more delighted.”
And we couldn’t be more proud of the star for choosing to spend his free time in such a bloomin’ fantastic way, and judging by the quick-to-trend Twitter hashtag #LiamIsARoleModel we’re not the only ones:
