Outstanding Young Person Award

Outstanding Young Person Award

Congratulations to Charlotte Baker in Year 9 who received the 'Outstanding Young Person of the Year' Award at the 'Believe in Somerset' Awards. The awards ceremony, held on Thursday 8th December 2016, saw Charlotte pick up this most coveted award.

Charlotte was selected for her charity work which has been done in the memory of her late brother, Dominic.  She has run cake sales, car boots and quizzes to raise money for Child Bereavement UK.  Just recently she organised to buy shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child, managing to fill more than 70 boxes. 

Charlotte was subsequently interviewed by Claire Carter on BBC Radio Somerset where she gave an eloquent account of why her fundraising was so important to her.  

Mrs Botterill said:  "This is such a fantastic achievement, and we are thrilled for Charlotte and her family."
