Top citizen award for Esme

A 16 year old student, who was diagnosed with cancer of the brain and given just a 30% chance of living to the age of ten, was acknowledged for her fundraising efforts last week at the West Mercia Police Young Good Citizen of the Year Awards.

Shrewsbury College Start Up student, Esme Ramsden, was named as one of ten young people recognised at the awards evening, which was held at the Force Headquarters at Hindlip Hall, Worcester.

Esme has carried out a great deal of charity work including: raising over £500 for AICER, a cancer research charity; organising a garden sale donating all monies to the Rainbow Appeal at Royal Shrewsburym Hospital to build a children's cancer ward and volunteering at the Cancer Research shop in Shrewsbury.

Paula Van Ommeren, Programme Leader for Pathways to Progression at Shrewsbury College, said: “We are delighted and proud that Esme has been acknowledged with such a prestigious award. She is a determined student who thoroughly deserves such recognition."

The Young Good Citizen Award Scheme is run by West Mercia Police in partnership with the High Sheriffs of Shropshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire. The awards, now in their 25th year, aim to honour those whose acts of generosity and displays of community spirit have made a difference to other people's lives.
