The team at Specsavers in Eltham believe there are a number of young local heroes and is urging them to share their stories in order to be in with a chance of receiving a prestigious award.
Dame Mary Perkins, founder of Specsavers, has a special request for young people is Eltham. Dame Mary is a patron and supporter of the BCYA (British Citizen Youth Awards) and these awards are very close to her heart.
The awards help to celebrate the most remarkable acts of kindness, compassion and ingenuity shown by children from across the country and she believes there may be a couple of big stars in Eltham worthy of an award.
If selected as a winner, you could go on to attend a day at Palace of Westminster in October 2017, where Specsavers founder Dame Mary Perkins will present the medals to those individuals who have done amazing things for their communities.
It’s really easy to apply too. 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.
