Rotary Young Citizen of the Year Award

This week saw the award of Rotary’s Wolverhampton Young Citizen of the Year Award celebrating the personal courage, care for others, achievement or contribution to the community of some of the City’s most inspiring young people.

The event was hosted by the Mayor of Wolverhampton, Sandra Samuels with Guest of Honour Lisa Webb, who was given Freedom of the City for both her charity work and her incredible bravery as a young teacher when she protected children from a knifeman at her school in 1996.

We’re taking the opportunity to recognise each of our finalists and to express our thanks to them for the difference which they are making in our community.
