Vicki founded A.P.P.L.E Arts Centre in Acton Park – a youth centre where young people can come to play, learn and be creative. The centre has a very close-knit family feel and she hopes to give everyone who comes a sense of belonging and a happy childhood like she had. The film was created by a group of young people from Acton as part of a Chocolate Films filmmaking workshop.
