Overcoming Adversity

Many islanders young or old are faced with challenges that can seem insurmountable, whether they be emotional or physical, mental or social.

Often some people rise to the challenge and show a considerable personal strength and spirit that is both impressive and humbling to see. This award aims to celebrate their achievement of ‘the impossible’ and how in overcoming their adversity they offer hope and inspiration to others in our community.
