Mayor's Bourne Academy Volunteers of the Year!


We are proud to announce that two of our students have been presented with the Mayor of Bournemouth’s Volunteer of the Year Award 2018. Student, Dan Searley, started a community business called ‘DT Entertainment’ in 2016 along with some of his fellow students. They collected lighting and sound gear and volunteered their help at many local events.

By 2018, the group had volunteered at many local events: marshalling and organising lighting and sound. Some of the events they have attended in the last two years are: Kinson Music Festival 2017, Redhill Summer Fete, Mayday Donkey Derby, School shows & productions, the list goes on!

Student Dan says ‘We were so surprised to find out we were winners of the ‘Mayor of Bournemouth’s Volunteer of the Year Award 2018’ after being nominated by a Bournemouth youth development worker.
