    Stars from the community

    The London Borough of Bromley holds an annual celebration event called Bromley Stars (sponsored by LBB contractors).  This event celebrates the fantastic work carried out in Bromley.  The 90 strong team of Bromley Mentoring Initiative mentors were nominated under the category of volunteers who make a huge contribution to Bromley services and we are delighted to report that they won!  This is fantastic publicity for the work they do but also a great way for LBB Senior Management to acknowledge the commitment and dedication they show to the young people they support.  Their contribution in hours equates to over 3,400 over an academic year and in excess of £25,000 if we paid them!
