Celebrations at LOOK-UK as mentors are nominated for national award

Still in its pilot year, LOOK-UK’s mentors are making it an awards season, as some have been nominated for a national award. This is thrilling news for our mentors and mentees, whose names are up for the Brightside Trust Mentoring Award.

The Brightside Trust mentoring awards celebrate the inspiring stories of mentors and mentees nationwide. It works with over 9,000 mentees and 4,000 mentors across 60 projects, and has received 130 nominations for awards. A fantastic achievement for LOOK’s mentors. Winning mentors and mentees will be presented with a certificate and engraved trophy on the night. And the dress code is smart but not black tie

LOOK is delighted their efforts have been recognised. Of the nominees, Harriet has been shortlisted for the mentee of the year award, and Danielle and Jack have been shortlisted for mentoring pair of the year. You can find more information on the awards here. You can check out the shortlist for the awards  here. A huge thank you to Brightside Trust for this nomination and well done to our mentors and mentees.
