Specsavers founder Dame Mary Perkins is urging the people of Morden to nominate their local heroes for this year’s British Citizen Youth Award (BCYA).
The BCYA gives the public the opportunity to highlight acts of kindness and compassion carried out by children that have had a positive impact on charities, communities and society.
Selected winners will be invited to attend a special presentation at The Palace of Westminster in October 2017, where Dame Mary Perkins will be on hand to give medals to individuals in recognition of their amazing accomplishments.
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.
