Teenager Billy Griffiths has scooped a top award recognising the work he does in his local community and at the Neale-Wade Academy in March.

Billy, 14, was presented with the ‘contribution to the local community’ prize at the school’s annual awards.

This year the award was sponsored by estate agents Harrison Murray and Tracey Palmer, senior sales negotiator at the March branch, went along to hand over the prize.

Billy, not only supports a school garden project but also volunteers or is an ambassador for a number of other community projects including being part of Fenland Youth District Council and Young Leaders in Service.

Tracey said: “We were delighted to go along to Neale-Wade to present the trophy to Billy - a fantastic and inspirational young man who is a really worthy winner.”

The winner was five-year-old Layton and he was presented with a goody bag by estate agency manager Nicola Roberts, watched by his fellow pupils.
