SUPPLY chain specialists Oakland International joined other sponsors in congratulating this year’s winners of young people’s Tryangle Awards.
Celebrating the amazing volunteering efforts and achievements of young people in Worcestershire, the awards honour those who despite health, disability or social problems overcome adversity to ‘get the job done’ at home, school, college or within their community.
Supporting young people in the community is a prime focus for Beoley-based Oakland International who six years ago launched their own children’s charity, Oakland Foundation, with the aim of helping children under the age of 16 and their families with projects such as health and nutrition, education and sport.
The firm’s distribution manager, Luke Attwell, who presented the Bravery Award category at Tryangle, said: “It was an honour to join fellow award sponsors and celebrate the many amazing personal achievements of these young people.
“Their dedication and perseverance are an inspiration to us all. I wish every award winner my sincere congratulations.”
Award categories included: Arts and Music, Sports, Bravery, Good Friends and Carers, Citizenship and Environment and Personal Development.
The awards run by Young Solutions Worcestershire, is a charity dedicated to keeping young people throughout the county of Worcestershire ‘safe and involved’ by providing advice and training, voluntary youth clubs and community groups.
Young Solutions chief officer, Pete Sugg, said: “It really makes the evening special to have the awards presented by those in business locally who also have an interest in community projects.”
