Gainsborough Rotary Club held its Citizenship Awards Night at Hemswell Court to reward those who go that extra mile for their community.

Senior and junior members of the community were all celebrated.

The Senior award went to Michael Wragg, MBE, for his work on behalf of many leading charitable organisations in Gainsborough.

Teacher Mark Szostak accompanied pupils Chloe Oxby and Tom Atkinson from the Trent Valley Academy to receive their awards.

Chloe is described as a ‘model pupil’, who devotes a considerable amount of her time to fund-raising for several different causes.

Tom Atkinson, noted for his organisational skills, is a quiet, determined young man, decided to carry out a sponsored parachute jump, raising £500 for the Help for Heroes fund.

Teacher Neil Allan escorted the two awardees from Queen Elizabeth High School to receive their awards.

Bethany Simpson has undertaken a two week work experience course at ‘Magic Moments’ a centre for autistic children in Scunthorpe where she now acts as a volunteer.

Kylie King signed up to complete a National Citizenship Award involving a four phase set of challenges. Kylie has already received the award at Silver level. She has found time to assist pupils at her former primary school and acts as a Year Seven mentor. She is an Air Cadet and after studying Maths at university is hoping to join the RAF.
