Deserving youngsters have been nominated for an award to recognise their bravery.

Apprentice star Claire Young, who took part in The Apprentice in 2008 where she reached the final of Lord Sugar's search for a star, was on hand at Browns in York to speak about the finals of the Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards.

A box dedicated to nominations was inside the store on Saturday to collect entries for the awards, which take place at New Dock Hall, in Leeds, on October 10.

The awards recognise youngsters aged up to 18 who have given up their time to care for others, displayed outstanding bravery, or achieved something in sport throughout the last year.
