Young Leaders Award 2017

The award goes to a young person aged between 14 and 24 who has demonstrated outstanding personal leadership in contributing to meeting the aims of the Society. 

She was given the award for her work at Wellington Swimming Pool who said the following about Alex in the ceremony's 'Presentation of Honours' programme: 

'Wellington Swimming Pool owes so much of its recent success to Alexandra, whose continued dedication and commitment to delivering drowning prevention messages, has seen children and young adults, signing up to a range of programmes like Rookie Lifeguard and Survive & Save. 

'Alex is continually seeking out new ways to promote and deliver these vital messages in the local community and she works tirelessly to forge contacts with fellow students, teachers and local schools, to attract new candidates.

'Through her own participation in the Survive & Save programme and exepriences as a Young Leader, Alex's personal knowledge has developed exponentially; combine this with her drive, energy and enthusiasm and it is no surprise that the children can be seen, clearly enjoying their Rookie lessons with her. 

'Alex is a rare find and Wellington Swimming Pool is lucky to have her'.

Well done Alex!
