Ascona Group (‘Ascona’), a top 10 UK independent forecourt operator and one of the Fast Growth 50’s fastest growing businesses in Wales in 2021, 2022 and 2023, is delighted to announce a new sponsorship partnership with the 2024 Child of Wales Awards.

The Child of Wales Awards celebrate the inspirational achievements of remarkable young people across Wales. They cover every corner of the country in a wide range of categories that span outstanding personal courage, bravery, sporting and creative achievements, and also recognise the children who help others, champion causes in their communities, protect the environment, care for others or raise funds to help other good causes.  

As part of the new partnership, Ascona will sponsor two awards at this year’s event on 27th September: the Bravery Award and the Courageous Family Award. The Bravery Award recognises young heroes who have shown exceptional fortitude and determination in the face of adversity, while the Courageous Family Award honours the strength and spirit of families who have overcome significant challenges together over the last year.

The Child of Wales Awards 2024 will be hosted at the Swansea Arena on Friday, 27th September 2024. The event promises to be an evening of inspiration and celebration, bringing together an amazing cross-section of society to honour the young individuals and families who have shown exceptional bravery and courage.

Darren Briggs, founder and CEO of Ascona Group, commented:

"Since we launched Ascona in 2011, supporting our communities has been at the heart of everything we do, so I am very proud that we are able to support the Child of Wales awards in 2024 and invest in the future of our nation – our children.

“We are so inspired by the stories of these young individuals and their families, who have shown such remarkable bravery and courage in the face of real adversity. It is an honour to support the Child of Wales awards as they shine a light on the incredible journeys of some of the UK’s bravest young people and their families, and to be able to celebrate their achievements in front of the entire nation."

Blanche Sainsbury, founder of Child of Britain, said:

"We are thrilled to have Darren and the entire Ascona sponsor some of our awards this year. The Bravery and Courageous Family awards are two ways in which we can highlight some amazing people this year. Their support not only contributes to the success of the event but also helps us to further our mission in recognising the extraordinary courage displayed by children and their families across the UK.

“These awards wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of businesses like Ascona, who share our passion of shining a light on these remarkable young people so we are so grateful for their involvement."
