Following on from success at the EVCOM Clarion Awards held at Covent Garden in September, drp and the YSS Worcestershire Young Carers Conference were through to the next round of awards – the EVCOM Live Awards at Olympia, London.

The awards were held on Friday 20th November and drp kindly invited 2 representatives of Worcestershire Young Carers to attend.  Participation & Key Worker Vicky Parker accompanied Adult Young carer Ness Mountford (co-chair of the conference in April), aged 20,  to the awards.

IMG_0178The two excitedly started their London adventure on Friday lunchtime – travelling down by train then catching the tube.  As the awards started late in the evening, Vicky and Ness were lucky enough to stop overnight in a nearby hotel.  After checking into the hotel, bags were swiftly dumped for a short bit of IMG_0185shopping!   Then a swift makeover was required to get ready for the awards – the theme being “dress to impress”.

The awards ceremony was huge – hosting over 500 professionals from the events and communications industry.  Vicky and Ness were extremely lucky to have front row seats on the drp table who made them all feel very welcome.  They were treated to a  three course meal and live entertainment even before the awards got under way!

Vicky commented ” Then came the moment we’d all been waiting for – drp and YSS Worcestershire Young Carers were up for the Clarion Grand Prix award  all winners from the previous EVCOM Clarion Awards were nominated for this category) and we won!  Even better, Dale Parmenter, CEO of drp invited Vicky and Ness on stage with him and project manager Katie Farr to receive the award – what an experience!”
