YOUTH club boss Trevor Robinson has been put forward for a prestigious award by someone who knows exactly how devoted he is to local youngsters.

Trevor’s wife Claire put her hubby forward for a Pride of Hartlepool Award after the Mail launched the initiative to honour the town’s unsung heroes.

The 30-year-old dad-of-five has been at Belle Vue Community Sports Centre, in Kendal Road, Hartlepool, since starting there on a YTS scheme at the age of 16.

Despite now having a full-time role at the centre as youth project co-ordinator, he works tirelessly in his own time to raise funds and awareness to ensure the survival of the youth club.

Claire, also 30, who lives with Ian and their children in the Owton Manor area of town, told the Mail: “Without the youth club the children of Belle Vue and surrounding areas wouldn’t have anywhere to go.

“Trevor dedicates so much of his time to helping the youth club

“I think Trevor is wonderful and I’m sure a lot of people would share my views.

“He goes above and beyond all of the time in his work and is constantly thinking of ways to improve the youth club and ensure it survives.”

The Mail launched the Pride of Hartlepool Awards a few weeks ago to celebrate the achievements of those people in Hartlepool who go that extra mile to help others.

The awards will recognise and celebrate the achievements of people from all walks of life whose selfless dedication lights up the lives of others.

There are 12 categories and we are urging readers to put forward those special people who you feel deserve to be publicly recognised and honoured.

Trevor has been nominated in the Safer Community category which is sponsored by housing management services provider Gentoo.

The deadline for nominations is March 5 and a presentation ceremony will be held at Hartlepool College of Further Education at the end of the month.

Details of how to nominate people are on the form printed below.
