Tryangle Awards Evening March 2019

“Truly some inspiring stories from the young people.  Well done on a successful event!” Luke Attwell from Oakland International

“I find the Tryangle Awards inspirational; they recognise young people who give so much both to their own families and to the community around them. It was a pleasure to meet the recipients and to hear their personal stories.  Both Kaitlin and Joshua care for one of their parents – Kaitlin for her father and Joshua for his mother, and both have overcome difficulties to present school assemblies and increase their voluntary work, helping others to deal with the challenges they face.

Good Friends and Carers Award

Charlie has become a champion for looked-after children and care leavers in the county and is not only determined to reach university in spite of his learning difficulties but also to support others to enable their voice to be heard. 

I am so glad that we can continue to sponsor the awards as we have done for several years now.” Charlotte Thornton-Smith, Head of the Worcester Office from Harrison Clark Rickerbys.

West Mercia Police Cadets – “A great night helping with Tryangle Awards – thanks to Young Solutions Worcestershire for inviting us. Congratulations to all of the recipients and those whose efforts has been recognised with a nomination.”

 

These were some of the comments after the 2019 Tryangle Awards, held on Thursday 28th March at Worcester Bosch. Over 80 people attended the evening to see the 17 most outstanding young people in Worcestershire presented with an exclusive ‘Tryangle Award trophy’ and certificate. The awards celebrate the achievements and efforts of young people, and uniquely recognise the ‘tryers’. These are young people who show real commitment and resolve, those who get on with things without a fuss, and those who go above and beyond. This year we received 60 nominations from across Worcestershire and we read about many wonderful achievements.

One of those remarkable young people is Mohammed from Worcester who helped save the life of a pensioner.  As he was walking to school he heard a cry for help from a neighbour’s front garden.  Mohammed, who is just 13 years of age, recognised the lady and called his family to help him.  The lady had been ignored by several other passers-by and the quick response of Mohammed helped save her life by getting the paramedics to attend and take her to hospital.  Mohammed’s actions are a selfless example of putting others before yourself.

Ryan aged 15 has used various sporting activities to fundraise for St Richards Hospice, British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK.  Ryan demonstrates a great example of how sport and physical activity can be used to help local communities as well as maintaining and improving personal health and fitness.

Another recipient was Liliana.  She was knocked over by a bus in Worcester city and suffered serious internal injuries.  Liliana is 14 years of age and despite the accident she has maintained her strong will to overcome the difficulties she faced during her recovery and has returned to school on a part-time basis to continue her studies.

The Tryangle Awards also recognise the Adult Volunteers who make an outstanding contribution to the clubs and communities in Worcestershire. James was nominated for his volunteering commitment at the Vale of Evesham Special School. He actually attended the school as a pupil four years previously. When he left school he found it hard to secure a job. He decided to offer his own time to the Middle School volunteer team. His patience and positive outlook make him an excellent role model for the older students he supports. James loves sport and gets the students involved with a game of football during lunch times. James is one of life’s extraordinary people who make the world a better place.

The awards evening was sponsored by local organisations including Oakland International, Mazak, Fortis Living, Harrison Clark Rickerbys, Baxter Williams and The Margaret Westwood Memorial Charity.  Volunteers from the West Mercia Police Cadets helped co-ordinate the evening and we are very grateful for their help.
