Dame Mary Perkins backs great campaign
Founder of Specsavers, Dame Mary Perkins, is a patron and supporter of the BCYA, an awards scheme that looks to celebrate the great achievement of young people.
She has asked Specsavers in Lymington to search out for some great stories, and we would love locals to get nominating. The scheme rewards its winners with 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.
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.
