Specsavers in Edmonton Green is calling on youngsters to share stories about their amazing accomplishments for the chance to win a national award.

The store is hunting for candidates for this year’s British Citizen Youth Award (BCYA), an initiative celebrating feats carried out by children that have positively benefited charities, communities and society as a whole.

Specsavers Edmonton Green is being supported in its search by Specsavers founder Dame Mary Perkins, an active supporter and patron of the BCYA.

Medal winners

Those selected to receive an award will be invited to a special event being held at The Palace of Westminster, where Dame Mary Perkins will be on hand to present medals to individuals in recognition of their incredible achievements.

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 jacquif@britishcitizenawards.co.uk with BCYA in the subject line. The deadline for all entries is Wednesday 9 August 2017.
