The SimplyBiz Group is delighted to be the sponsor of the Examiner Community Awards ‘Young Personality of the Year’ category. We are proud to celebrate the triumphs and achievements of young people in and around Huddersfield, some of whom have battled against enormous adversity to make a real difference to the local community.
The Group are delighted to congratulate this year's winner of the 'Young Personality of the Year' award, Maisie Catt.
Maisie had to have her legs amputated as a baby - one above the knee and one below - after her blood was poisoned by septicaemia, yet is now being tipped to represent the UK in the Paralympics just weeks after taking up the martial art of taekwondo.
After just three months’ training she was selected to join an elite training programme and is part of the GB taekwondo parapoomsae squad. She has even been contacted by the president of World Taekwondo who is based in South Korea and has personally praised Maisie for being such a wonderful role model for the sport.
Gary Kershaw, Compliance Director of The SimplyBiz Group, congratulates the winner and runners-up of the Young Personality of the Year Award 2017.
