Acting students' named among 'unsung heroes' in Leeds at Compassionate City Awards
Creative arts acting students were among a number of unsung heroes’ nominated for an award at the Compassionate City Awards held on 22 November 2018 in Leeds.
The performers, who were nominated for the Jo Cox award, were recognised for their play, titled You see I feel, that highlighted and raised awareness of the devastating effects of terrorism.
Councillor Debra Coupar said “The Compassionate City Awards are held to recognise and celebrate the important and positive work many individuals and organisations are doing to make their local communities a better place.”
The Jo Cox award celebrates an individual or organisation who have gone above and beyond to unite and bring different communities together, supported newer communities to feel welcome into their communities and championed specific issues which help to create more cohesive and integrated communities.
