Congratulations to Year 7 student Reece Lunt, who last night was announced winner of the Personal Achievement Category (8-13 Years) at the Sunderland Young Achievers Awards 2017.
Since being diagnosed with diabetes, Reece has become an advocate for the education of others and fund raiser for Diabetes UK. When attending Rickleton Primary he presented school assemblies and helped to organise a World Diabetes Day which raised hundreds of pounds. Since joining Lord Lawson, in Project Time lessons Reece has continued to make his peers aware of what Diabetes is, how to spot the signs and symptoms and how the condition can be managed successfully. He is a remarkable young man, who is not only determined to do well himself but also cares about the welfare of others.
Reece became one of only eight children Nationally to win the Jubilee Award for Character 2016 and was presented with his award at a prestigious ceremony at the House of Lords in July.
This is an amazing achievement Reece, many congratulations from everyone at Lord Lawson.
