The Tom Foulkes Award for Outstanding Achievement


The Tom Foulkes Award for Outstanding Achievement 2014 has been awarded to Amelie for her achievement on her bike ride for charity.


Independent judge Lorraine said,

"The task of choosing the overall winner was almost impossible but it had to be done so I have chosen Amelie whose achievement on her bike ride for charity had three very important elements,

Bravery, determination and generosity.

In doing what she did Amelie has shown that you should never give up on what you really want to do and having the right positive attitude can make happen what people thought was impossible. Amelie could have given in to the barriers that she faces and say that it was too hard for her to do something for others, but she didn't. She carried out her bike ride even though she had to push herself to the limits of what she had achieved before to the extent that other people have taken inspiration from her, which is an amazing thing for someone so young to have done."
