Specsavers at Park Centre is teaming up with top local paper the Andersonstown News and is backing their first ever ‘Inspirational Youth of the West Awards’ by sponsoring five categories. The Awards aim to champion the achievements of young people who are 18 and under and local people putting forward nominations in 35 different categories.

Categories span sporting accolades, voluntary work, academic and cultural achievements and the gala awards evening takes place on Friday 7th October at the Devenish Hotel.

Inspired by young people

The opticians and audiologists based in Park Centre shopping mall have been serving families in the local community for the past five years and Specsavers store manager and dispensing optician Jayne Martin said the store team was delighted to back such an important awards programme.

‘We meet many teenagers and their families at our store and we’re always impressed by their achievements whether it is in sport, voluntary work, in school, at training courses or in the workplace. We’re pleased to be working alongside the Andersonstown News on such a positive and exciting project and are looking forward to seeing our local young ambassadors rewarded for their hard work, inspirational ideas and sporting achievements.’
