Recognising Inspiring Youngsters

Earlier this month, I had the privilege of presenting the annual Elmbridge Young Persons Awards, recognising the achievements of youngsters accross the borough in the face of adversity, overcoming great challenges or in otherwise remarkable circumstances. They include children suffering from disability or illness, those who have lost close family members and many inspiring stories of selflessness.

The evening was reported by the Elmbridge Guardian here. It is always quite a moving occasion. Some of the stories are rather sad. But, overall, the event is an uplifting opportunity to pay tribute to the strength of character and tenacity of so many local youngsters across our communities.
