Frenchgate Shopping Centre marketing executive Matthew Owen said: “The team here at Frenchgate Shopping Centre are extremely proud to be supporting the Superkids awards.

“We hold the Doncaster community at the heart of everything we do and, as such, feel Superkids awards are the perfect platform to celebrate the region’s most amazing and outstanding children.”

Amazon UK Services Ltd community relations manager Neil Williams said: “Amazon is guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking.

“Here in Doncaster, we have three state-of-the-art fulfilment centres and, as in every other community in which we operate, we support great causes on our doorstep.

“We’re proud to support Doncaster Superkids, to be able to honour​​ ​tomorrow’s citizens, the academically talented youngsters who support our community, overcome adversity, are brave and go one step further for the greater good of all.

“Our community work is focused on helping children succeed – and this is a great way to celebrate their success”.
