Student Receives Volunteering Award

Megane Sykes met with Mrs Gee this week to discuss her amazing commitment to a local care home over the last two years. Megane volunteers at the Millard Care Home in Braintree. She spends time with elderly people in the home and is especially empathetic towards those suffering with Alzheimer’s disease. Megane’s work has gained attention recently as she was awarded Braintree’s Volunteering Award and Braintree Council made a short documentary of her work to encourage more young people to do the same.

Megane is a credit to her school and its values and ethos; she is principled, caring and very impressive in her determination to help those in need of a little company and kindness.
