A number of Doncaster College students and staff have won awards in recent months.

Students Danielle Hughes, Kanisha Fullwood and staff member Yvonne Ledger have featured in the Pride in Doncaster Awards and the Best in Education Awards.

Seventeen-year-old Danielle won the Inspirational Young Person of the Year Award at the Pride in Doncaster Awards Ceremony.

Danielle (pictured), of Bentley, in Doncaster, received her award after volunteering at her local youth club for six years, where she earned such awards as first aid and fire marshal.

She also volunteered for the youth council, where she and other young people debated issues facing the local community such as the rise in bus fares.

Danielle is currently studying childcare Level One at the college and is hoping to progress to Level 2 and 3 before going to university.

She said: “I was really happy to win the award, I wasn’t expecting to. My family are really proud.”

Kanisha Fullwood won The Personal Achievement Award and Yvonne Ledger won the Best Lunch Person Award at the Best in Education Awards Ceremony.

Kanisha (19) is a third year Life Skills student who has serious medical issues which affect her mobility and can make her feel quite weak

She passed all her qualifications and participates in all aspects of college life.
