Tryangle Awards 2013
“The night was a great success! What inspirational young people!”
The outstanding achievements of young people from across Worcestershire were recognised at this year’s Tryangle Awards evening. Over 100 people attended the Awards presentation held in the splendid Worcester Bosch conference facilities on 21st March where 18 amazing young people were recipients of the Awards in one of six categories – bravery; sport; arts; citizenship; good friends and personal development.
All the young people receiving the Awards had demonstrated dedication, commitment and determination and had made a contribution to their community, with their achievements being over and above what could have been expected. Some of those had overcome serious personal challenges including ill health, learning difficulties or homelessness and the Awards also showcased the contribution young people make as volunteers, sports coaches and role models. There were young people who had cared for parents and grandparents; who had saved lives; who worked to support unemployed young people; who had raised money for local charities and who had devoted enormous amounts of time to coaching or supporting other young people.
The evening was hosted by two young people - Benni Reader and Lauren Devine from the Artrix Art Centre in Bromsgrove. They introduced the recipients and welcomed those presenting the Awards which included people from business, education, police as well as the Chairman of WCVYS.
This was undoubtedly an evening that will be remembered for a long time by those receiving the Awards and this celebration of young people’s achievement gives rise to both pride and hope. We at WCVYS could not have organised the event without the generous support from Worcester Bosch along with Birmingham Federation of Clubs for Young People and A&A Photo Art.
