During this years annual National Convention on Friday 24th November in the afternoon, we celebrated the  JCI UK TOYP awards. Which took place at the Grand Harbour Hotel in Southampton which was hosted by the wonderful Sarah Beckwith our 2017 T.O.Y.P Manager. Were we listened to our honorees sharing an inspirational interview on how they had overcome potentially life-changing challenges, each winner discussed an overall insight about there journey, contribution and outstanding work which they have delivered in order to create sustainable change.
