On Friday 1 March, Formby Parish Council hosted its annual ‘Pride of Formby Awards’ at the Gild Hall. We are delighted to confirm that former student Fred won ‘Special Young Person of the Year’ and former students Charlotte and Evie won ‘Young Fundraisers of the Year’. Fred was nominated by the school to receive this award as he approached all aspects of his school career with real passion and enthusiasm and this carried him through a very challenging year and incredibly challenging circumstances. He faced these challenges without ever complaining and always with his trademark smile! Charlotte and Evie were nominated for their fabulous fundraising achievements whilst they were in Year 11. The girls took time away from their GCSE studies to plan and deliver a fundraising campaign to raise money for Drop 4 Drop, a charity that uses funds raised to install wells in developing world countries to enable people living in poor communities to have access to clean water. They raised almost £1500 which contributed to the installation of a well.
We are immensely proud of Fred, Evie and Charlotte and know they will go on to achieve great things, well done!
