The Lord-Lieutenant attended the Rotary Club of Brighton Young Citizen Award Ceremony at the Metropole Hotel in Brighton last night to present Silver and Gold Award Certificates to some 60 students from Longhill and Varndean High Schools.
The Lord-Lieutenant thanked the young people for their commitment and congratulated them on their achievements. He said “Many of you have been deeply involved in supporting others and you have learnt that your lives are enriched by giving up your time to help. I congratulate you on your achievements and hope you will continue your support and involvement.”
Speaking after the event, the Centenary President of the Brighton Rotary Club, Peter Jukes OBE said “This is the first of what will be an annual event and we were delighted that two of our most committed high schools took part. These young people are a credit to their schools, families and the local community.”
