SYST Awards & Celebration event to be held in March 2024

As we stride into 2024, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our new inaugural SYST Awards and Celebration Event, a momentous occasion where we come together to celebrate the achievements of Shropshire Youth Support Trust during the past year, to reward remarkable individuals, and to cast a spotlight on the invaluable work of our charity. 
 
This new event serves not only as a recognition platform but also as an opportunity to raise awareness about the mission of SYST and to encourage more individuals and businesses to join us in making a positive impact.

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 20th, 2024, as we gather at the historic Engine Shop in the Ironbridge Gorge Museum from 6-8pm. This promises to be an evening filled with inspiration, celebration, and the chance to connect with like-minded individuals dedicated to creating positive change.

We also have several incredible guest speakers during the evening, including Ed Reeves who is the former Founder and MD of Moneypenny, and Mandy Thorn MBE who is Shropshire’s High Sheriff for 2023-2024.

  • The Stoddart Award: This award goes to a young person who has successfully developed their own business with the support of SYST and are still showing great progress and potential (Criteria – Must have been supported by SYST within the past 5 years.) Prize – an award to keep plus a cheque for £500.
  • SYST Mentor of the Year: This award goes to a SYST mentor that has gone above and beyond to support young people over the past 12 months. Prize – an award to keep.
