Take pride in youth with award ac­co­lade

Accrington Observer - - YOUR VIEWS -

NOM­I­NA­TIONS are open for the Pride of Ac­cring­ton Lions Youth Awards 2018.

Or­gan­is­ers are look­ing for teach­ers, youth lead­ers, par­ents, si­b­lings, churches and peers to put names for­ward.

The awards are open to any child or young per­son who lives, at­tends school or col­lege, is part of a com­mu­nity group or works in Hyn­d­burn.

They are split into age groups 10 years and younger, or 11 to 18.

Caz More­ton, of the Ac­cring­ton Lions, said: “The awards are now in their sev­enth year and are go­ing from strength to strength with more nom­i­na­tions com­ing in each year.

“Do you know a child or young per­son with con­nec­tions to Hyn­d­burn that makes you feel proud to know them? If so, why not share that in­for­ma­tion with us and let them get the ac­knowl­edge­ment that they de­serve?”

Award cat­e­gories in­clude: young carer; car­ing for oth­ers; brav­ery; en­vi­ron­ment; com­mu­nity im­prove­ment; dis­as­ter re­lief or pub­lic health; sportsper­son; mu­si­cian and fundrais­ing.

The clos­ing date is May 31 and the pre­sen­ta­tion will be held at Brook Street Club on June 23. To ap­ply call 0845 833 7386 or email caz.prideof@gmail.com.
