The winners were Katie Jukes (Courage category); Robyn Reid (Young Person’s Champion); Adam Birch (Back On Track); Ethan Scott (Entertainment); Holly Bratt (Outstanding Contribution to Youth Work); and Matthew Watson (Academic Achievement).
The winners also included Connor Stallard (fundraising); Rozzy Plaza (Sporting Success); Reece Moran (Volunteering in the Community); and Throston Youth Group (Project of the Year).
