Specsavers in Bridport is following its lead from founder, Dame Mary Perkins by urging locals to support a great awards scheme.

Introducing the BCYA

Dame Mary Perkins is a patron and supporter of these great awards that celebrates the amazing work of young people to society, charities and communities.

The store would love to see Bridport recognised.  Those chosen to receive an award will attend a special presentation at the Palace of Westminster in October 2017, where Specsavers founder Dame Mary Perkins will present the medals. 

What the BCYA are looking for

The awards recognises many acts of kindness, bravery and compassion carried out by children across the UK. Says store director for Specsavers in Bridport, Chris Newall: ‘These awards give young people the chance to be celebrated and rewarded, and we’re extremely proud to be involved in such as a worthy cause.’
