Student receives award from CRUK

Amarvir Chatha received an award from CRUK for winning the category for Young Volunteer of the Year 2019. The event took place at Skinners Hall in London and he supported the event by volunteering with the young children who were there going through treatment themselves. 

Amarvir has helped raised vital funds though the school and supporting the local community to raise awareness of Cancer and the impact of the disease. On many occasions he has openly talked about his own personal struggles and how he overcame those in a positive way.  Amarvir was diagnosed with Leukaemia in 2010 and was given 24 hours to live.  He is now in Year 10 and working tremendously hard to be an upstanding citizen in society.
