Our family of awards is growing!

Young Achievers Awards
Young Achievers Awards

The Young Achievers Awards recognise inspirational young people who’ve made a difference through their volunteer efforts, in the arts, community, environment and sport during the past 12 months.

Rachel Edwards

Once again, Rachel Edwards distinguished herself by finishing runner-up in the Young Arts Achiever category.

A ceremony was held on Friday 5th February 2010 at the Young Achievers Training & Celebration event. This took place at the Amnesty International Human Rights Action Centre, London, on Friday 5th February.

Rachel's project Ding to take the Call has received the runner-up prize in this national award. Rachel participated in a number of workshops led by inspirational speakers and this was followed by an awards ceremony later that evening.

Rachel Edwards

Rachel was presented with a cheque for £500 as a cash prize for her to spend as she sees fit. This is what she said about the event:

"I was so pleased to be offered the experience of attending the Young Achievers Award Celebration in London.

It was a fun-packed day, where I had the chance to meet and engage with many other Volunteers, younger and older. The event consisted of 2 workshops which were very helpful in giving advice about how to widen your volunteer opportunities, which I know I will be using.

It was fantastic to hear what other young volunteers like myself have achieved, and that it makes a difference to the bad press that young people have these days. I was delighted that I came runner-up and received a cheque for £500 and a 'Money Can't Buy Experience'.

It was a great day and I feel proud of my achievements, with the help and support of Flintshire Neighbourhood Watch."

Since Rachels' volunteer time with us she has now secured a place at Bangor University studying Media and Marketing. Rachel also received membership to the Fellowship of the RSA (Royal Society of the Arts) this will enable her to meet exciting and inspirational young people doing tremendous things across the UK as well as opening up access to a potential support network.

Rachel Edwards

Congratulations on all her hard work have so far been received from High Sheriff of Crimebeat, Henry Robertson, who awarded Rachel with the Under 25 years category winner at the North Wales Criminal Justice Awards 2009, from President of Flintshire Neighbourhood Watch Association Rt Hon Lord Jones PC, and from Chief Superintendent Ruth Purdie who presented Rachel an award at the launch of the project at the Good Neighbourhood Conference 08.

We are extremely proud of the achievements of Rachel and her project. The whole event will be published on our website and featured in our Good Neighbour Newsletter - Y-factor section issue 10. We have requested pictures from the Awards night and these will be made available when possible.

Chief Executive Officer Denise Edwards of Flintshire Neighbourhood Watch Association said: "Young People who participate in volunteering give their time, work hard, are selfless and we believe it is important to give them something back that recognises their inspirational work".

Here is a quote from Jill Blandford, from the Flintshire Local Voluntary Council:
"What brilliant news, we will include this in our ‘Youth Matters’ newsletter which highlights youth volunteering activities in the county".
