Ian Morris, the Chief Officer at Peterlee Town Council invited Heather to give an inspiring speech at the Inaugural Young Heroes Awards 2019. This event focussed on young people and their families in Peterlee and Durham on the 10th May 2019 at the Town Council at Shotton Hall.

In 2018 the Police, Town Council, Groundwork UK (a leading youth engagement charity) and a few other local partners launched the inaugural Young Heroes Awards to much local celebration.

VBites Foods purchased the ex Walkers Crisps in 2018 and their aim is to support hundreds of local people with jobs in the area. 

The event was not only be attended by the young people and their families of Peterlee but also local dignitaries from agencies such as the Police, Councils, NHS, etc. Last years guests included Perrie Edwards from Little Mix and England rugby player Ellie Pickford.

“It was a major success and Heather’s speech went down fantastically well. Once again thank you!”

Councillor A Scott Meikle, Peterlee Town Council
