We are incredibly proud to share that Young Bristol has been recognised in the 2022 Bristol Young Heroes Awards.
The Bristol Young Heroes Awards recognises and celebrates the valuable contribution of young people aged 11 – 19 throughout Bristol. The awards also recongise groups and organisations which have shown exceptional team skills and dedication to benefit young people.
This year Chardonnay, a young volunteer at Ashton Vale Club for Young People, has been shortlisted for the Bristol Young Heroes ‘Action Hero’ Award!
Chardonnay was nominated by the team at Ashton Vale for her amazing growth since joining the Youth Club in 2014 and volunteering three nights per week for over 2 years.
Chardonnay who suffers from anxiety and has learning difficulties has flourished over the years becoming a trusted and valued member of the team, helping to deliver activities, running the tuck shop at Club and even supporting her local over 55’s Silver Social Club. The elderly members of the Club cannot speak highly enough of her!
Chardonnay suffered from a bereavement earlier this year, and even through this difficult time she continued to support the staff and club every week” says Lead Youth Worker Julie Chapman, “This dedication to her community really puts her above the rest!”
Congratulations to all of the young people and groups who are finalists for this years awards – we wish all candidates the best of luck! The Bristol Young Heroes Awards ceremony will take place on Friday 15th July 2022.
