St James’s Place Wealth Management is delighted to announce the 10th Anniversary of the Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards (YCCA). A special celebration of our past winners will take centre stage on Friday 9th October 2020 at New Dock Hall in Leeds.
We anticipate emotional scenes as the region’s bravest and most courageous children and young adults will be recognised and honoured. From those born with challenging, life-limiting conditions, but excelling in the face of their difficulties, to the young fundraisers who have been inspired to make a difference, to those going out of their way to achieve in their chosen sport – all the winners will be celebrated and have exceptional stories to tell.
There are new Award categories for the 2020 ceremony to celebrate the 10th Anniversary and these will feature:

The organisation behind the Awards is St. James’s Place Wealth Management. Since the company was set up in 1992, they have been raising funds for their own Charitable Foundation. To date this figure exceeds £93m. All monies raised are matched pound for pound by the FTSE 100-listed St. James’s Place Wealth Management and there is a focus placed on distributing funds to charities and organisations that support children and young adults. The funds raised by YCCA contribute hugely towards helping needy children, community groups and organisations in the Yorkshire region.
Our event has a distinctly ‘Yorkshire flavour’ with support and endorsement throughout the year from Yorkshire born celebrity Ambassadors and Friends. They are joined at the Awards by personalities from the worlds of business, sport and entertainment.

What is significant is that many past winners have used YCCA as a ‘springboard’ to further achievement and recognition in their careers and daily lives.
