The hunt is on for inspirational local people

We are very pleased to be sponsors of the Doncaster Free Press Community awards once again this year.

As in previous years, we have selected categories that specifically recognise young talent or achievements.

We will be supporting the Hannah Brown Young Citizen award that recognises the work of a young person in the community.

This award was introduced last year as a tribute to a remarkable young lady that devoted her last few months to fundraising after she was diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour; Hannah died in October 2014, at the age of 17. This very special award will go to someone who has made a difference and who is also an inspiration to others, perhaps through their fundraising or volunteer work.  

In addition, we will also be supporting the Athlete of the Year category. This award will recognise the recent sporting achievements of a young person in our community, and will go to a sportsperson under the age of 21 who has excelled, either individually or as part of a team, at local or national level.

Don Bird, senior partner at Atherton Godfrey, said: “It is so important for the younger generation to have something to aspire to and for their achievements to be recognised. These awards are an excellent way to focus on what’s good about the young people of Doncaster and to highlight what can be achieved.

We are constantly impressed by the stories of the nominees and look forward to presenting the winners with their well-deserved awards.”

The award ceremony will be held at the Keepmoat Stadium on Thursday 19 May.

If you would like to nominate someone in the community that deserves some recognition for their hard work or achievements, keep an eye on our Facebook page or watch out for details in the Doncaster Free Press in the coming weeks.
