The British Citizen Youth Awards in association with Specsavers are searching for young people who have demonstrated kindness, bravery or compassion in their local community.

Do you know anyone in Penzance who is deserving of this prestigious award?

2016 south west winners

In 2016, sisters Esme, aged seven and Bronte, aged four represented the south west at the awards presentation in the Palace of Westminster with Specsavers founder and awards Patron, Dame Mary Perkins.

The sisters were awarded for their fundraising efforts in support of their parent’s charity, the Mariposa Trust, a baby loss charity started in 2012.

Penzance store director, James Wildy, said: ‘It’s so inspiring to hear the incredible stories and achievements of the young people nominated for the British Citizen Youth Awards, and we’re extremely proud to support such a worthy cause.’
