Barking on lookout for young heroes
The team at Specsavers in Barking are calling on customers to help them find the next set of winners for this year’s British Citizen Youth Award (BCYA).
Now in its second year, the BCYA, in association with Specsavers, was established to help celebrate the kind and selfless acts of children that have benefited charities, communities and society.
The initiative is being backed by Specsavers founder Dame Mary Perkins, who is an active supporter and patron of the BCYA.
Youngsters selected to receive an award will be treated to a special event at The Palace of Westminster in October 2017, where Dame Mary Perkins will present medals to individuals in recognition of their incredible accomplishments.
The British Citizen Youth Award is open to all children who will be under the age of 16 in October 2017. To apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with BCYA in the subject line. The deadline for all entries is Wednesday 9 August 2017.
