Lord Mayor of York’s Shine Awards

Every year, the Lord Mayor of York holds the Shine Awards, asking people to nominate the young people they feel have inspired others, contributed to their community, helped to create opportunities or have gone the extra mile. These are fantastic awards and honour the commitment that our young people give in support of their local communities, so it was wonderful to attend this year.


Adam, Fiona, Phil and Mary excitedly await the start of the awards ceremony.


We are very proud to share the news that our Snappy volunteers won the Award for Excellence, received by Phil and Mary. Well done guys! We have some absolutely fantastic volunteers at Snappy and we couldn’t offer our programmes so successfully without their support, so to see them acknowledged by this award is just wonderful!


This award was received by Phil and Mary.



In addition to this, our very own Adam received the Award for Young Volunteer of the Year, following his dedication and commitment to Snappy. Congratulations Adam, and thank you for your continued support!! 


Well done Adam, we’re very proud!
