BearHugs Founder, Faye, is a Finalist at the National Prince's Trust Celebrate Success Awards
I am very excited that, after winning the Enterprise Award at the Yorkshire and Humber Prince's Trust Awards in November, I have been chosen as a finalist for the Enterprise Award at the National Prince's Trust Celebrate Success Awards.
The awards ceremony will take place at the London Palladium on Wednesday 15th March.
You can find out a bit more about the ceremony and watch the highlights from last year (featuring Prince Charles, Tom Hardy, Geri Halliwell, Ant and Dec and others!) by clicking the link below.
I can't really express how much it means to me to be selected as one of the three finalists in the Enterprise category. When I attended the Yorkshire and Humber Celebrate Success Awards at the end of last year and listened to the incredible stories of all the nominees I felt privileged to simply be in the same room as such amazing, resilient people. To be selected as a winner in my category absolutely blew me away. Looking around the room and speaking to people after the event, I was struck by the number of people involved in the Prince's Trust who truly care about changing the lives of young people for the better. The more I speak to young people whose lives have been transformed by the Trust's programmes, the prouder I feel to represent the charity as a Young Ambassador.
I can't wait for the event in March and am excited to meet the other finalists!
