Two age categories for Sid Valley Rotary award

DO you know a young person who has made an outstanding contribution to the life of the community, or has overcome a serious disability in helping others?

Someone who may be a long-term carer or provider for a parent or sibling, or has given outstanding service for the benefit of a school, club or charity?

Sid Valley Rotary Club is waiting to hear all about such young people to consider them for its second Young Citizen of the Year award.

The club’s press officer, John Rush, said: “All too often we read stories in the papers which give a negative impression of young people.

“However I am certain that we all know somebody who has made an outstanding contribution to their school, their community or their family.

“This is your opportunity to recognise and reward these young people for their commitment and enthusiasm, so please send in your nominations.

“We are looking for nominees, who reside in the Sid Valley Area, in two age categories; up to 14 years old and aged 14 to 21.

“We would particularly welcome nominations from the younger age group, who were not particularly well represented last year.”

Nomination forms are being sent to all schools in the area or may be made using the form printed with this article.

All shortlisted nominees will be invited to an awards ceremony to be held at East Devon District’s Offices at the Knowle in November.
