Community Action Award

2009 Winner :Shern Hall Youth Methodist Steel Band

Shern Hall Youth Methodist Steel Band

The 2009 Creme of Nature Community Action Award was won by the Shern Hall Youth Methodist Steel Band.

Evangelica Brumant the Youth and Musical Leader for the Shern Hall Youth Methodist Steel Band along with Dr Lionel McCalman from Nostalgia Steel Band and the committee members applied for the award because of a desperate need to purchase a set of new steel pans rather than borrowing pans from Nostalgia.

Evangelica summed it up: “for over three years we have been nurtured and developed by Nostalgia Steel Band using their instruments. We have dreamed of having our own so that we can grow and fulfill our potential and make a real difference to those in our community. Today all our prayers have been answered. This award makes so much possible, we are absolutely thrilled. We wish to thank the organisers, adjudicators and fellow applicants for making this event possible. We hope our endeavours will prove us worthy winners of this prestigious award.”

The presentation took place on July 10th at The Galleria in Bromley. The Galleria is a community hair and beauty training salon that was created with the help of last year’s award and is now able to offer skills for life to many who otherwise would have little or no chance of becoming economically independent.
