For 34 years, throughout even the darkest days of The Troubles in the 1970s, grandmother Mary Kelly has devoted all her spare time to trying to unite young people in her divided community in North Belfast.

 

She suffered a terrifying hate campaign in which her car was fire-bombed, bricks were hurled through her windows and paint was thrown over her house.

 

People living in Camden's notorious Clarence Way estate were too frightened to act against the junkies and the gangs operating near their homes.

 

When the family from hell moved into her street, Lesley Pulman single-handedly took on the bullies and won.

 

Her neighbours think Audrey Flash is one in a million.  Born in Jamaica, 63-year-old Audrey emigrated to the UK in the 1960s and has spent the past 25 years as a youth worker at Birmingham's Woodview Community Centre.

 

Despite being treated for cancer, June , 71, is a tower of strength.  The age of 70 is a milestone - and usually a time when most people want to put their feet up.
