Rotary club seeks Sidmouth Young Citizen of Year
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.
You may also want to watch:
“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.
