Children of Courage shine at Awards

Wednesday 22nd October 2014

The fourth Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards were handed out at New Dock Hall, Leeds, to recognise some of the region’s bravest youngsters.

Gordons is proud to have been an award sponsor and the presentation event was attended by more than 700 people.

The aim of the awards is to raise money to help disadvantaged youngsters while acknowledging those in the region who have shown courage in dealing with difficult circumstances. In total, 12 young people from across Yorkshire were honoured.

The event was hosted by BBC Breakfast presenter Steph McGovern. Guests enjoyed a meal by Aagrah Restaurants and entertainment by tenor Jonathan Ansell. Children’s entertainers the Chuckle Brothers were also on hand to add to the fun.

Paul Ayre said: “We are extremely proud to be associated with the Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards. The children recognised at the event have shown incredible bravery and strength to overcome many different obstacles in their young lives and the awards present a perfect opportunity to champion them and their achievements.”
