Shakespeare & Bridge Community Church Nominated for Child-Friendly Leeds Award
On Thursday 7th February, Rev. Andy Lenton, Mrs Wilson and two lucky Year 5 and 6 children attended the prestigious city-wide event that celebrates all the work that is happening across the city to make Leeds the best place for children and young people to grow up in.
This year, the awards were planned by a group of 13 young people called The Dynamics. They worked hard to organise every aspect of the awards and hosted the memorable evening. There were a record number of nominations received this year, with just under 600 nominations being made across the eight categories with an additional special recognition award.
We were nominated for the Communities and Schools Working Together award forour work with Bridge Community Church to offer school very much needed school places. All of the shortlisted projects were very deserving and we'd like to congratulate Hovingham who won the category for their work on the ‘The Hall Meets Hovingham’ Dementia Project which involved pupils from Hovingham Primary visiting The Hall (a care home) with a view to raising awareness about dementia and contributing to the health and well-being of the older residents.
