COUNCILLOR Hannah Gray declared that she got “the best gig” when she stood in for Bromley’s mayor to present certificates to 19 boys and girls from Bromley schools who have made outstanding contributions to the community.
Around a hundred proud friends and family members applauded the winners at this year’s Bromley Rotary Club’s Youth Award Ceremony, held at Langley Park Centre for the Performing Arts on January 27.
The scheme, established in 2015, recognises and celebrates the contribution that young people make, outside school, to the communities they live in.
This year seven secondary schools participated, and awards were given to pupils from Harris Academy Beckenham, Coopers School, Charles Darwin School, The Ravensbourne School, Langley Park Boys School, St Olave’s Grammar School and Bromley High School.
Stuart Jack and Gilbert McGinn from Bromley Rotary conducted the proceedings, which included a vigorous and highly professional musical interlude from the Langley Park School for Boys’ dance band and concluded with light refreshments.
Charles Darwin student Lucy Coop received special mention for her voluntary work and fundraising for musical charities.
Other award winners were Bayade Abass, Haydar Abdul-Hussain, Chrysie Alexiou, Oliver Bennett, Fleur Bruneau-Cordell, Saskia Clubb, Nathan Daniel, Albin Dragusha, India-Marie Lindsay, Izzabelle McGuiness, Louis McLean, Kirandeep Nagra, Aanya Patel, Tariq Reid-Musa, Lucy Robinson, David Sharp, Ellie Sheehan, and Natalie Speller.
