Freddie Farmer has been honoured by Prime Minister David Cameron and featured in an inspirational film.
Freddie (11), from West Wickham, who was born with cerebral palsy but refused to let it stop him achieving his dreams, was awarded a prestigious Point of Light. Now he’s been featured with six other award winners in a film released today on the Points of Light website.
Freddie received his award in June, which recognises outstanding individual volunteers, people who are making a change in their community and inspiring others.
Mr Cameron said: "Points of Light are extraordinary volunteers whose service is making a difference in our community.
“Points of Light really proves something I’ve always thought to be true – it’s not just governments that can change the world; it’s people. It’s Points of Light whose service shows the very best of humanity, and whose inspiration can help us tackle some of the greatest social challenges of our time.”
Karen Smith of Freddie Farmer Foundation said: "It is wonderful that Freddie's efforts have been recognised by the Prime Minister.
“I am so very proud of Freddie and the part he plays in our Foundation.”
