Staff at Specsavers in Swanley believe there are lots of young local heroes in the area and are urging them to share their stories to be in with a chance of winning a prestigious award.

Specsavers in Swanley supports its founder's cause

Dame Mary Perkins, founder of Specsavers, has a special request for Swanley.  As patron and supporter of the BCYA or the British Citizen Youth Awards and these awards are very close to her heart.  

They celebrate and recognise the amazing achievements of young people who support the community, local charities and society as a whole - and she believes Swanley could have a great local hero worthy of an award.
