Superhero Awards - we are all heroes in our own way

Young people will be recognised in the ‘Superhero Awards’ to be held on Friday 19th February from 4 - 7pm, in Bedford.

Children and young people, who are in the care of Bedford Borough Council, have been nominated for awards by their social workers, recognising their personal achievements over the last 12 months - 75 nominations had been received. The Superhero theme was developed by members of the RAW (rights & wrongs) group made up of young people from social care.

Those individuals nominated to receive an award will have impressed their social workers with a number of attributes such as: outstanding educational achievements, their support with participation groups, improved behaviour, making good progress with independent living, 100% attendance at school.

Cllr David Sawyer portfolio holder for Children’s Services said: “I am delighted to be able to play a part in this heart-warming awards ceremony. In the face of adversity, these young people have battled on with determination and grit and have achieved great things as a result. Their attitude to life will mean their futures will know no bounds.”

During the ceremony, a Knife crime DVD will be showcased, along with a musical performance by a young person, and the Urban Funki Munki dancers.
