Young Swimmer of the Year
Charlotte Blake scooped the top award in the Young Swimmer of the Year category after she impressed the judges with her dedication to swimming, in addition to her other duties at home.
As well as being a young carer for her mum and sister, 10 year-old Charlotte trains five times a week at her local pool, cycles to school every day, helps with household chores and assists her teachers in school swimming lessons.
She is so positive and brings so much to my life and the children she helps to teach.
She helps her teachers with school swimming lessons, working with younger pupils who are less confident.
She helps her mother Claire - who has a congenital hip disease and uses a mobility scooter - with household chores taking in the washing and takes 18-year old sister Emily - who is autistic - swimming because she has difficulty asking for tickets.
Claire, who nominated her for the award, said: “Charlotte deserves to win because she is so positive and brings so much to my life and to the children she helps to teach.
“She has more responsibilities than most ten-years-olds, having to juggle household duties with school work, but she still manages to pursue her passion for swimming and I couldn’t be more proud of her.”
