Walsh Taylor continues to sponsor Yorkshire Young Achievers Awards

Walsh Taylor are delighted once again to sponsor the Yorkshire Young Achievers Awards for the sixth year in a row, an organisation that supports young people and organisations across the region.

Once again Walsh Taylor will sponsor the Special Award, which is given to friends and supporters of the foundation who have helped it to raise funds to support young people throughout the region. With a long list of distinguished winners, last year’s Special Award was presented to ITV’s Christine Talbot and Duncan Wood by Walsh Taylor Director Kate Breese. Christine Talbot and Duncan Wood are Patrons of the foundation and as well as co-hosting the event every year, dedicate their personal and professional time to the foundation throughout the year.

The Yorkshire Young Achievers Foundation was set up in 2010 to support, fund and recognise outstanding young people in the region and those who work with them. Previous award winners include Lizzie Armitstead, Kelvin Fletcher and Kimberley Walsh.

The nominations for 2018 are now open with the awards taking place on Thursday 8th November at the Leeds United Centenary Pavilion.

Though the Special Award is decided by organisers, nominations for the below categories officially opened last week:

  • Personality of the Year
  • Youngster of the Year (12 and under)
  • Unsung Hero
  • Achievement in the Arts
  • Achievement in Education
  • Achievement in Management and Enterprise
  • Achievement in Sport

Anyone can nominate a potential winner by simply clicking here and filling out the nomination form. The closing date for this is Friday 14th September.

The awards have raised over £1.2 million to support young people in Yorkshire since being established and Walsh Taylor are proud to continue to be a sponsor in their 26th year.
