TWO Bridlington youngsters were honoured at an award ceremony in Hull earlier this week after excelling in team-building scheme organised by Humberside Police.
Kirsty Bearfield, 16 and Brandon Jennison, 15, won a trip to Alton Towers as a reward for finishing third in the Humberside Police Night Challenge at the ceremony at Hull’s Odeon Cinema.
In total, 126 young people from across the Humberside force area completed the event; a 12.8 mile hike around Brantingham Dale and surrounding areas.
Kirsty and Brandon, who joined local PCSO Liam Whittington and Hull PCSO Dave Collinson to make up the ‘Spa Tans’ team, finished the event tied in third place with ‘Storm Troopers’ from Immingham and were presented with their award by Brian Slater of Humberside and Lincolnshire Orienteers.
In addition to securing a team award, Kirsty was presented with a certificate for oustanding individual achievement by Superintendent Kevin Bowe, from the Humberside Police Community Safety unit.
She was also one of just four individuals who were nominated by their group leaders on the night and recognised by the Tribune Trust and will go on to be interviewed for a place on an Outward Bound Classic Course.
Kirsty and Brandon both received a year’s membership to attend any of Humberside and Lincolnshire Orienteers meetings as a result of their outstanding performances during the Night Challenge.
