Dame Mary Perkins, founder of Specsavers, and the team at Specsavers in Streatham are encouraging the local community to put forward its bright young stars for this year’s British Citizen Youth Award (BCYA).

British Citizen Youth Awards

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 have the chance to attend a special presentation at The Palace of Westminster in October 2017, where Dame Mary Perkins will be in attendance to give medals to individuals in recognition of their incredible achievements.
