Specsavers in Waterlooville is urging customers to get behind its search for young superstars for this year’s British Citizen Youth Award (BCYA).

British Citizen Youth Award

Now in its second year, the BCYA, in association with Specsavers, is an initiative set up to recognise acts of kindness and compassion undertaken by children that have had a positive impact on charities, communities and society.

Dame Mary Perkins, founder of Specsavers, is an active supporter and a patron of the BCYA and is backing Specsavers Waterlooville in its hunt for local nominations.

A day to remember

Those selected to receive an award will be invited to a special event at The Palace of Westminster in October 2017, where Dame Mary Perkins will present medals to individuals in recognition of their incredible 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 jacquif@britishcitizenawards.co.uk with BCYA in the subject line. The deadline for all entries is Wednesday 9 August 2017.
