VOLUNTEER film-makers from Freya Films Youth Club, Bromley, won a national community film-making award for a video they made to go with the song Soldier's Eyes by Jack Savoretti.
The video and song reflect on the waste of life and suffering caused to innocent people and families in countries at war.
Volunteers aged between 16 and 25 received their gong from TV presenter and media personality Konnie Huq at a ceremony in the Appledore Hotel, Regent Street.
The competition was run through a nationwide programme - BOOM! - that challenges young people to make and share films that raise awareness of community and social issues and campaign for change.
BOOM! is a partnership project involving Clubs for Young People, one of the UK's leading voluntary community and club-based youth work organisations, youth volunteering charity 'v', MTV and youth engagement agency TomTom nation.
