A 15-year-old pupil from Pinner High School has been awarded a prestigious award from the Jack Petchy Foundation.
Maya Mistry from Pinner was one of 73 young people in Harrow to be presented with an award at a digital live event last month.
The event celebrated Achievement Award winners aged 11-25 from Harrow for their contributions to their community.
Maya was recognised for her work as a young carer for her brother, she wakes up every day at 5.30 am to carry out daily responsibilities for him. Despite this challenge, Maya still completes all her school work and never complains, always having a positive outlook in life and at school.
She was awarded a framed certificate from the Foundation along with a £250 grant which she plans to spend on equipment at Pinner High School.
The Jack Petchy Foundation was set up to inspire and motivate young people by providing exciting projects and recognising the outstanding achievements of young people by awarding them for their hard work and positive impact in their community.
The Jack Petchey Foundation has worked with schools and youth groups across Harrow providing £995,849 in funding to schools and youth clubs in the local area.
