The Barnsley Young Champions 2018 awards ceremony was held last week at the Town Hall.

People are recommended from schools all over the Borough and although all deserved the recognition, Stevie O was recognized and awarded as being the person who deserved the young carer's award for 2018.

Stevie , helped care for her mum who suffered with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder until her death in 2016. Stevie continues to help care for her brother, who suffers from Cerebral Palsy, and her older sister and guardian, Terri Hirst's young children.

Alongside all of this Stevie volunteers for Bernados supporting other young carers

Even after she had received the award Stevie said, 'I really wasn't expecting to win. There are so many other people who are just as caring.'

Well done Stevie , everyone at Kirk Balk is very proud of you.
