We are thrilled to share the news that Amelia, one of our children in year 2, has been recognised at the Bassetlaw Achievers Award Ceremony this year!

On March 15 Amelia was awarded a Young Achievers Award for her dedication to fundraising for Maggie’s, a charity that provides free cancer support to local families.

To fundraise for the charity Amelia held a cake and fresh lemonade sale to raise money and trained to run the Children’s Great North Run. Amelia trained with mum to cover the 1.5k distance and through great determination she ran whole distance without stopping.

Unfortunately, after all the training, the Children’s Race was cancelled, but Amelia didn’t let that stop her and she travelled all the way to Newcastle and ran the course anyway!

All in all, Amelia raised £680 for the charity and showed incredible grit, determination and resilience and we couldn’t be prouder of her, a truly well-deserved award.
