Youth Work Excellence Awards 2012

by promocymru_admin | 2nd Apr 2012

On the night of the Thursday 23rd February, SWALEC Stadium played host to the Youth Work Excellence Awards 2012, where youth workers and projects are rewarded.

Eleven awards were handed out to individual efforts and projects alike.

Organised by the Welsh Government, the night was hosted by Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens, with Deputy Minister for Skills Jeff Cuthbert, Simon Weston OBE and Daily Mail TV critic Jaci Stephens helping with the process of handing out the awards.

Only Boys Aloud provided musical pieces before the event, ranging from the stirring Calon Lan to a choir version of Take That’s Shine, which made everyone on the CLIC table dance like monkeys who just discovered they’ll receive free bananas for life!

We also held interviews with those who attended, including Huw Edwards, Simon Weston OBE and members of Only Men Aloud, all of which will be uploaded to CLICplay.
