A huge CONGRATULATIONS to our finalists:

The finalists will attend a prestigious awards ceremony in London on Friday 18th November where the winners of each category will be announced. Watch the video below to see last year’s highlights.

We knew it would be hard for YMCA England & Wales to select the finalists amongst such a wide range of inspiring projects and people. They said:

We received an overwhelming response and have had the pleasure – and the challenge – of reviewing all the fantastic nominations with our external judges over the last couple of weeks, including a record-breaking public vote with more than 14,500 votes cast.
