The Star’s Superkids Awards 2011 would not have been possible without the generous input of local businesses.
Frankie & Benny’s was the main sponsor, for the second year running.
Claire Eaton, Frankie & Benny’s area manager in South Yorkshire, who presented the Young Citizen of the Year award, said: “Frankie & Benny’s are delighted to have been main sponsor of The Star’s Superkids 2011.
“We were all humbled by the examples of courage, talent and community spirit to name just some of the personal qualities displayed.
“It was therefore an honour for us to be involved in recognising even more of the area’s children and young people who have displayed such qualities.
“As a family restaurant brand with a strong track record for supporting children’s charities, youth sport and education we recognise Superkids as a hugely important date in the calendar.
“I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of everyone at Frankie & Benny’s to offer our heartfelt congratulations to all of the winners”.
