Queen’s Badge Celebration 2017

Thursday 27th July 2017

The NID Queen’s Badge Celebration took place on Friday 19 May 2017 in Wellington Presbyterian Church, Ballymena. A total of 268 young men received the Queen’s Award in NI in 2017. It was a privilege to see many of these young men receive their Queens’s Badge at the celebration event representing commitment, hard work, enthusiasm and over 16,000 hours of volunteering. The special guest was Daniel Wright.

‘Daniel Wright has risen to the position of assistant golf professional just five years after a heart condition ended his hopes of a football career. The 22-year-old was a goalkeeper with Wolves when he almost died during a game and was subsequently forced to retire. Daniel decided to give golf a go and five years after swinging a club for the first time he is assistant pro at Royal County Down.’ Source – BBC Sport.

Daniel was interviewed by Queen’s Man, Neru Baay, in a fun and informal chat show style. During the interview Daniel shared some of his hopes and dreams and his faith journey with the young men and their friends and family who gathered to mark the special occasion.
