Bethany wins a Spirit of Youth Award

Each year Bolton at Home recognises some of Bolton’s most outstanding local volunteers at their annual customer awards ceremony that is held at the Macron Stadium

More than 300 people, including the Mayor and Mayoress of Bolton, attended the 2018 'Stars of the Community’ event, which rewards volunteers who've worked selflessly to improve their neighbourhoods and communities.

 Bethany Weall (Year 10) was nominated by Val Hulme from Bolton Council for the Spirit of Youth award as she tirelessly helps out at Elderdale community centre on Yewdale Gardens. Every Monday Bethany attends drama at Elderdale and always helps set up for the session as well as tidying everything (including the thankless task of washing and drying the tea mugs and plates). Also, Bethany regularly litter picks in the Withins area.

Bethany was awarded a Runner-Up Certificate and Val Hulme said ‘how delighted she was as Bethany always supports the Withins area’. Bethany’s Mum said ‘I couldn’t be prouder of my daughter’.

Mrs Weall added 'if you wish to become involved in improving the Withins area you may like to check out the Withins Action Group (WAG) Facebook page which is  trying to encourage people to join and get more things in the area for families.
