Romeo Challenger wins an award
Romeo Challenger, a Year 8 student at The Axholme Academy, won the award of Young Carer of the Year at the Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards on Friday 14th October. Romeo knew he had been nominated for an award but receiving it was a complete surprise.
Romeo said he felt really special at the glitzy awards held at the New Dock Hall in Leeds. He was excited to meet the Chuckle Brothers and other celebrities who were there.
Principal, Joe Sellars, said ‘We are all delighted that Romeo was recognised with this important award. Young Carers do a fantastic but often unnoticed and unrecognised job so it is good that high profile awards such as these raise the profile of young people who contribute in such an important way’.
