Young people at Barnardo’s Include Me 2 service in Preston scooped a top honour at the Celebrate Youth Awards 2014.
The youngsters received the community engagement accolade at an award ceremony evening held at Park Hall Hotel, Chorley.
The award identified young people who help to promote a sense of community and improve the quality of people’s lives. It also recognises young people who have demonstrated that they are committed to bringing people together and inspire changes that lead to improvements in their local community.
A young person from the group said: “We are really pleased to receive this award as we are so proud of what we do, it is a massive achievement.
“We would like to thank the service manager Debbie Nolan Plunkett for making the participation service happen and all the staff involved in the participation work.”
