Specsavers in Worthing is encouraging youngsters to share stories about their amazing achievements to be in with a chance to win a top award.
The store is looking for nominations for this year’s British Citizen Youth Award (BCYA), which highlights acts of kindness and compassion carried out by children to benefit charities, communities and society. The initiative is being backed by Specsavers founder Dame Mary Perkins (pictured), an active supporter and patron of the BCYA.
Selected BCYA winners will attend a special event at The Palace of Westminster in October 2017, where Dame Mary Perkins will be in attendance to 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.
