Annual Pramerica awards honour Ireland’s best young volunteers for their contribution to their local communities.

The Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards 2018 were recently held at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. The event is run in partnership with the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principals, and the General Teaching Council for Northern Ireland.

Two outstanding youth volunteers from Antrim and Dublin, Daniella Timperley and Niall Gosson, were declared the All-Ireland Youth Volunteers of the Year at the awards.

“Both Niall and Daniella are amazing students and inspiring role models in their local communities,” said Andrea McBride, vice-president of Pramerica Systems Ireland.

“These awards are designed to shine a light on the commitment and dedication of young people in today’s society who give their free time to make their local communities a better place.”
