Kapow! Young superheroes are honoured at the East Midlands Celebrate Success Awards!
The Roundhouse in Derby provided a superb backdrop to the 2015 East Midlands Celebrate Success Awards – and what a ceremony it was! Hosted by comedian and impressionist Jon Culshaw, young people from across the region were recognised for their incredible achievements and journeys through The Prince’s Trust.
21 finalists were separated into seven categories and presented with their awards by our fantastic sponsors in the region. The stories of the young people had the audience captivated from start to finish, moved by the hardships they had overcome and cheering at what they had achieved.
Entertainment was provided by Young Ambassador and magician Luca Gallone – whose career as a performer was boosted by support from our Enterprise programme. Marc Wileman, whose science party business Sublime Science also benefitted from Enterprise, delivered an inspiring and humorous speech about his journey to success. Several other budding entrepreneurs also showed off their own businesses to guests in the venue.
As Jon Culshaw reminded the audience throughout the event – using a number of different accents – all of the young people were winners. Their nominations are a testament to what they have achieved and they should all be proud of their accomplishments – we certainly are!
A special thanks to all our champions, supporters, sponsors and partners across the East Midlands. Your dedicated support helps us to give young people the opportunities they need to get their lives on track. Until next year then, all that’s left is to wish the young people in the East Midlands the very best of luck as they embark on this new chapter in their lives.
