Young People’s Awards
Two Year 13 students were recognised for their tremendous volunteering efforts at the Credit Union’s ‘First Young People’s Awards’, which was held on Monday 13thNovember at the Adair Arms Hotel in Ballymena. Daniella Timperley won the ‘Leadership’ award and Ellie Barry was runner up in the same category. The aim of this event was to give recognition to teenagers in the local community who spend their free time volunteering for admirable causes and for those who excel in sports.
Daniella Timperley is involved in numerous charitable efforts. She works with Women’s Aid, Cinemagic, Save the Children and Children in Need to name just a few!
Ellie received her nomination from Carniny Football Club for her enthusiasm and dedication towards coaching the girls’ football team.Ellie also works with children with disabilities and takes part in numerous fundraising activities.
It’s clear from her range of charitable ventures that both girls have made a massive difference to the lives of so many people and fully deserves to be given formal recognition. They are a credit to their community. They work tirelessly and selflessly for the benefit of others and are role models for the youth of today!
