21 March 2011
The Young Disabled Volunteers Back Swimming video scooped the mygames Digital Documenters Award at the First Light Awards.
Hosted by BBC Radio One’s Nick Grimshaw it was a fantastic event and recognized the achievement of all young people involved.
The video – produced by another mygames project, Digital Documenteers – was filmed at the South West Regional Disability Swimming Championships in Bristol last month and shows a day in the life of a young volunteer at a disability swimming event.
Marc Brooks, a mygames volunteer in the South West, attended the event held at the Odeon cinema in Leicester Square, London.
"It was great to be involved in the day and see a volunteers perspective of a swimming event up on the big screen," said Mark.
"I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who took the time to vote."
The film will be shown in cinemas across the country which will give a great boost to the programme and the young people involved.
