We seek your nominations for a Reach child or young adult (age 0-25) who you feel deserves to be recognised for their achievement during 2017, in memory of former national co-ordinator Sue Stokes who passed away in 2012. Sue gained great satisfaction from seeing and celebrating the achievements of our inspiring Reach children.
However small an achievement this might be, we want to hear about it. The activity could be in the field of sport, the arts, in or out of school, it might even be a boost in confidence or completing a personal challenge.
Our panel will announce the winner of the Sue Stokes Memorial Award at the 2018 Family Weekend in Bristol in October. The lucky winner will be presented with an engraved trophy, a small prize and will be featured in Within Reach and on the website. Although we can only award 1 prize we do like to feature nominees in our publications so please send in photos to help us celebrate our fabulous members so they can inspire others.
Our 2016 winner was Hollie Arnold, Gold Medal winning Paralympian, and 2015 celebrated paraclimbing with Matthew Phillips and his remarkable achievements. 2017 might see sport featured again, but there are lots of other occupations and ways to inspire so don’t be constrained, this could be overcoming obstacles, achievement is the arts, at school or outside activities, volunteering or by just being brilliant!
