Nominations for this year’s St. James’s Place Foundation Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards are flooding in thanks to the support of Manning Stainton.
The area’s leading estate agent is the official nomination roadshow partner for the annual event which honours deserving young people across Yorkshire and raises thousands of pounds for UK and overseas charities. The roadshow recently visited Manning Stainton’s lettings branch in Moortown where it was welcomed by Helen Oldham, Managing Director of Yorkshire Post Newspapers and Hazel Latner from the Beeston branch of Manning Stainton who is also the current Miss Leeds.
Meanwhile, Yorkshire business woman and Children of Courage ambassador Kate Hardcastle was also on hand to accept nominations at the firm’s branch in Harrogate.
The roadshow’s final destination is the Wakefield branch of Manning Stainton on July 27, when popular comedy double act and Charity Ambassadors the Chuckle Brothers will officially close the nominations for 2015.
Mark Manning, Sales Director at Manning Stainton says: ‘We are extremely proud to be associated with this wonderful event which is specifically dedicated to recognising the courage and achievements of young people across the county.’
The awards are presented at a glittering ceremony and dinner at New Dock Hall in Leeds on October 16, hosted by BBC Breakfast’s Steph McGovern.
They are split into two age categories; 0-12 year olds and 13-18 year olds with awards in each for Outstanding Bravery, Fundraiser, Special Recognition, Young Carer and Sporting Achievement.
Nominations can also be made online at www.yorkshirechildren.co.uk. The closing date is Wednesday July 29.
