In second place came Delilah Mawdsley aged 6 from Cleveleys who cut off 12 inches of her hair to donate to a trust for poorly children in memory of a friend, Charlie Jordan who died 11 as a result of a brain tumour. She raised £1250 for Brian House who looked after him in his final days in an act that meant a lot to Charlie’s mum bringing her much comfort in a time of great sadness and also much joy in keeping her boy’s name alive.
Highly commended was Nishan Khajuria aged 17 from Poulton who organised a charity event which raised around £320 to pay school fees for deprived children in Nepal.
Thomas Cowburn aged 17 from Thornton Cleveleys was also highly commended. He has been in the police cadets for over four years and works with them at charity events supporting young members as well as volunteering in our CCTV team.
In total some 18 awards/ commendations were given to children throughout Lancashire and we would like to wish a huge congratulations to them all.
