A Watford-based charity held an awards ceremony last month to honour the commitment, passion and teamwork of its participants.
Herts Inclusive Theatre (HIT), a charity offering drama activities and performance opportunities for young people, recently held their eighth Heart of HIT Awards to recognise the efforts of those who take part in their events.
The event was held on Sunday, June 26, at St Albans Girls’ School and included a raffle and three performances from students.
Attending the awards night were the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire Sally Burton and Deputy Lieutenant of Hertfordshire Akhtar Zaman.
The event brought together the friends and family of those involved with HIT, including the eight inclusive theatre groups which make up the charity: Watford Youth Theatre, Borehamwood Youth Theatre, Stevenage Youth Theatre, Hemel Hempstead Youth Theatre, Acting Up Adult Theatre, Hertford Adult Theatre, and Online Adult Drama.
High Sheriff of Hertfordshire Sally Burton said: “I was hugely entertained by three fun performances with lots of certificates and awards received by participants and volunteers.”
Deputy Lieutenant of Hertfordshire Akhtar Zaman said: “Congratulations to everyone who participated and a special congratulations to the award winners. I would also like to thank the staff and volunteers for the great work they do; without them, none of this would happen.”
