FIVE special young people were rewarded for bravery or their services as carers on Friday June 8 with a Winners’ Day at Drusillas Park.
Amy Williams, Elin Waite, Nicole Allen and brothers Calum and Lewie Clifford went to the day after being recognised at the Seaford Young Mayor’s Awards.
Each of them received a prize from Gordon Burke, trustee of the Keith Baker Charitable Trust, who sponsored the Seaford Young Mayor’s awards evening.
The Mayor of Seaford, Councillor Linda Wallraven, and Young Mayor Amy Gough also attended the event to welcome the winners and observe the proceedings.
The children enjoyed a buffet lunch at the Explorers Café Restaurant before each experiencing one of the zoo’s Animal Encounter sessions.
Amy Gough said: “What an amazing day for some truly phenomenal young people. Getting up close and personal with the animals was an amazing experience for all the winners.”
Gordon added: “Absolutely thrilled to be able to reward such deserving children, whose bravery has to be seen to be believed.”
